Approximately 2 million people in the United States suffer from severe dementia, and an additional 5 million have mild to moderate dementia. As life expectancy and the proportion of older individuals in the population continue to increase, dementia will become an ever more significant health problem, one that is compounded by its effects on the families of affected individuals. If the course of dementia is not modified by treatment, the number of individuals who will be affected by degenerative dementia in the coming decades will increase dramatically [1,2].
