The Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer’s Network (DIAN) is an international research partnership of leading scientists determined to understand a rare form of Alzheimer’s disease that is caused by an autosomal dominant gene mutation. Understanding this form of Alzheimer’s disease may provide clues to decoding other dementias and developing dementia treatments.

Currently enrolling study participants who are biological adult children of a parent with a mutated gene (PS1, PS2, APP) known to cause dominantly inherited Alzheimer’s disease. Such individuals may or may not carry the gene themselves and may or may not have disease symptoms. This international, multi-center longitudinal study is aiming to recruit 600 individuals: 300 expected to be gene carriers who will develop AD and 300 non-demented controls (siblings).

Participants are evaluated in a uniform manner at entry and longitudinally thereafter with instruments to include: the clinical and cognitive batteries that comprise the Uniform Data Set (UDS) and additional DIAN-specific testing. A full description is available on the DIAN website .

The Ginkgo Evaluation of Memory Study (GEMS) is a primary prevention trial of EGb 761 120 mg twice daily versus placebo. The primary study outcome was incident dementia, with secondary outcomes of cardiovascular disease/mortality, physical function, and cognitive change/progression as related to study drug. The study formulation and dose of Ginkgo biloba was not effective in reducing incident dementia.

Between October 2000 and May 2002, 3069 non-demented subjects ages >=75 years were screened and randomized to drug or placebo at four field centers; University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh PA, Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem and Greensboro NC, University of California Davis, Sacramento CA, and Johns Hopkins University, Hagerstown MD. Subjects were community dwelling volunteers. Subjects underwent detailed baseline and annual cognitive testing, and those with abnormal testing underwent a neurological exam and MRI. Subjects with an incident dementia diagnosis discontinued participation and were referred for treatment. Cognitive status was known for 93.6% of all trial participants. Retention in the trial was very high (195 withdrawals, 379 deaths).

Data collection was longitudinal until subjects reached the incident dementia endpoint, or the end of the trial. Median follow up from entry to final visit was 6.1 years. The detailed cognitive testing battery was administered at baseline and then annually beginning in 2003, with semi-annual administration of the 3MSE and CDR. A minimal dataset is available through NCRAD to approved users. The full dataset is available upon request from the GEMS Executive Committee.

The value of current Baltic Sea recreational visits represents the economic benefit from the activity. The estimates are based on information about travel costs and the number of recreational visits people make to the Baltic Sea and its coast. They measure the total value of Baltic Sea recreation visits during a year. The total recreational benefits of the Baltic Sea are around 15 billion euros annually (Figure B3.4.1).

The losses in value of Baltic Sea recreation, due to deterioration of the marine environment, are measured based on a change in citizens’ recreation values from a one-step change in the perceived status of the Baltic Sea marine environment. The perceived environmental status was measured on a 5-step scale from ‘very bad’ to ‘very good’, with the average being ‘neither bad nor good’, and thus, a one-step change means an improvement from ‘neither bad nor good’ to ‘rather good’. The change in recreation values stems from the predicted change in the expected number of trips to the Baltic Sea when the perceived environmental conditions change, based on econometric modelling. The losses of recreation values due to the deterioration of the marine environment are estimated to be 1–2 billion euros annually (Figure B3.4.2).

Value estimates are in purchasing power parity adjusted 2015 euros. Source: Czajkowski et al. (2015). This extensive study is an example of the necessity and importance of economic valuation studies that cover all costal countries, but further studies are needed across all countries before the results of the assessment can form a basis for the socioeconomic value of recreation in the Baltic Sea region.

Box 3.3 Example of ecosystem services approach in the use of marine waters analysis

The ecosystem services approach allows for a holistic analysis of the links between the status of the ecosystem and human well-being, and is not limited to market based information. Linking economic indicators, for example ‘value added’, with the ecosystem services approach, we can explore how human activities benefit from and impact on the environment in a more comprehensive way. The graph shows the results of this method applied in Sweden (Fig. B3.3.1).

Figure B33.1. Example on how human activities benefit from an impact on the environment. The bubble sizes represent the value added of each activity. The vertical axis represent the total environmental impact of human activities on the ecosystem services, and the horizontal axis represent the activities dependency on the state of ecosystem services. Economically and ecologically sound marine management would shift the location of the bubbles downward and increase the size of the bubbles. The result of this method is expected to vary from country to country.

Box 3.2 Losses in human well-being from the degradation of the marine environment

Degradation of the environment causes multiple adverse effects that reduce the economic benefits (or welfare) that people obtain from the marine environment, including increased water turbidity and more frequent cyanobacterial blooms, reduction and changes in fish stocks, contamination of fish and seafood, increased litter on the beaches and in the sea, and loss of marine biodiversity. The economic benefits that are lost if the sea does not reach a good environmental status are called the cost of degradation (see Figure B3.2.1).
