DEL MAR, Calif., Dec. 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ernest B. Remo, Chairman/CEO, announced today that American Diversified Holdings Corporation (Pink Sheets:ADHC) anticipates launching a new website offering free Alzheimer's screening on  Monday January 10th, 2011.  Interested parties will be able to take the Exam online at www.AlzheimersExam.com   This online test is the first phase in creating a mobile application platform in the mHealth arena specifically designed for the Apple(R) iPhone(TM), iPod Touch (TM), iPad(TM) and other mobile platforms including the Android(TM) platform developed by Google.

This site is directed at the over 140 million Americans over the age of 40 that are in the risk pool for developing early stage dementia.

The test is simple to take and score by either the care giver for an elderly person or anyone interested in determining a baseline cognitive memory and provides a early stage baseline of cognitive skills.

"Early diagnosis is the key to combating this horrible disease. The U.S. congress has recently passed legislation to create a National Alzheimer's Project to coordinate the country's approach to research, treatment and care-giving for this disease. The goal is to accelerate the development of treatments that would prevent, halt or reverse the course of Alzheimer's, and improve the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and coordination of the care and treatment of citizens with Alzheimer's," commented Ernest Remo, CEO of ADHC. "The enormous cost of treating this disease exceeded $170 billion in 2009 and is expected to massively increase to $800 billion by 2050. The number of Alzheimer's and Dementia patients is expected to grow from 5.3 million to over 20 million during this time frame. We believe these statistics offer a tremendous opportunity to build our mHealth business unit and create unique and innovative technologies that will assist researchers and healthcare practitioners in curing this disease, relieving the suffering of millions."

ABOUT ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE

Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other intellectual abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's the 7th leasing cause of death in the U.S. The disease affects approximately 5.3 million people domestically and over 30 million people globally, accounting for 50 to 70 percent of dementia cases. The U.S. cost of treating this disease exceeded $170 billion in 2010 and is expected to increase to $800 billion by 2050 as the aging population and early detection increases the incidence of Alzheimer's to over 20 million people in the U.S. and over 100 million people globally. Currently there is no cure for the disease but there are many therapies that can alleviate and delay the onset of symptoms. Up to 5 percent (250,000) of people with the disease have early-onset Alzheimer's (also known as younger-onset), which often appears when someone is in their 40s or 50s. No treatment is available to slow or stop the deterioration of brain cells in Alzheimer's disease. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved five drugs that temporarily slow worsening of symptoms for about six to 12 months, on average, for about half of the individuals who take them. Researchers have identified treatment strategies that may have the potential to change its course. Approximately 90 experimental therapies aimed at slowing or stopping the progression of Alzheimer's are in clinical testing with human volunteers.
