The study, published in Neurology ®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology, reveals that costs associated with FTD are twice that of Alzheimer's disease . The researchers also found that costs for FTD were greater in the U.S. than in studies originating in other countries and the implications for patients and their caregivers are dire. "Frontotemporal degeneration is associated with substantial direct and indirect costs, diminished quality of life, and increased caregiver burden," said James E. Galvin, M.D., M.P.H., lead author, associate dean for clinical research in FAU's Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine, and a leading international expert on AD, Lewy Body Dementia , and FTD. For the study and to quantify the socioeconomic burden of this disease, the researchers conducted a web-based survey to characterize the patient and caregiver experience with FTD-related resource use, health-related quality of life, and per-patient annual costs. At the time of the survey, 45 percent of caregivers still worked, while 37 percent were no longer employed after the patient's FTD diagnosis.
