Sight is one of our five senses, and it is hard to imagine what it would be like if we lost our vision.

September 28 is the “International Day for Universal Access to Information” (IDUAI), an annual event first organized by UNESCO in 2015.
From a medical point of view, the introduction of “lay summaries” has helped to make the key results of clinical trials more understandable for all. In June 2021, the European Commission published Good Lay Summary Practice recommendations to provide guidance to sponsors for the writing of these “plain language summaries“. Indeed, the publication of these summaries is now required according to the new European Directive on clinical trials, European Union Clinical Trials Regulation (EU-CTR) 536/2014, which entered into force on 31 January 2022 and which aims to increase the transparency of clinical trials and ensure better standards for patient safety.Read more

Alzheimer’s disease is a major global healthcare challenge. The number of people living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia is currently estimated at over 55 million worldwide, and this number is expected to reach 78 million by 2030. The prevalence of dementia is estimated at around 10 million across all European countries, and is expected to almost double by 2050. In France, 2.2 million people may be affected by the disease by 2050.
Associations and foundations around the world, including Alzheimer’s disease international, the UK Alzheimer’s society, and the French Fondation Vaincre Alzheimer and the France Alzheimer association, organize events every year to raise awareness about the disease, and fight prejudice against those living with Alzheimer’s by highlighting the preserved abilities of those affected by the disease and encouraging the general public to see the disease in a new light.
This year, World Alzheimer’s Day is on September 21, 2022. As part of the theme, “Know dementia, Know Alzheimer’s”, we invite you to take another look at the impact of this neurodegenerative disease on the different types of memory: not all types of memory are affected in the same way by the disease, and some memories are relatively well preserved.Read more
