Conference paper


The world population is now over six billion. In addition, we are in the middle of an unprecedent aging society, and medical practice is starting to focus on age-related diseases. The pathogenesis, early diagnosis, research, and development of treatments and prophylaxis are highlighted as an issue not only in the medical field but also in society. The target has shifted from secondary prevention via early diagnosis and early treatment to primary prevention before symptoms and signs are apparent.
