INCIDENCE RATES Burden of a disease. Risk of disease I x duration = Prevalence I x case fatality = Burden of mortality Predict future cases Planning health services Evaluate the impact of prevention Study risk factors.
Incidence phase (n=13,000) Sites –Cuba, DR, Venezuela, Mexico, Peru, China Outcomes –Dementia, Stroke, Dependence, Mortality Aetiology Cardiovascular risk (BP/ smoking/ fasting glucose/ cholesterol) Diet (anaemia, B12, folate, subclinical hypothyrodism, albumin, anthropometry) Developmental factors APOE and other genetic factors

Does African ancestry protect against dementia? A population-based case-control study in an admixed Cuban population? Admixtures mapping provides information about the contribution of genetic and non genetic factors. In Cuba, there is sufficient variation of admixture between individuals to detect relationships of disease risk to proportionate admixture.
10/66 admixture studies Design –Populations of mixed African and Caucasian ancestry –Genotype to measure ancestry directly in individuals Hypothesis –Higher levels of African ancestry associated with lower risk of dementia

Conclusions The world is facing a new epidemic of unprecedented proportions Its effects will be felt particularly in low and middle income countries - currently least prepared to meet the challenge Societal costs will rise inexorably, driven by the increasing need for long term care Time for action –Clinical care –Social policy –Prevention
