He continues to work as Research Professor of Neurosciences at the University of California at San Diego. Although Dr Katzman’s initial entry into Alzheimer’s disease (AD) work was a neurochemical analysis of the ganglioside loss in the AD brain, carried out with Dr Kinuko Suzuki in 1965, and a recent finding with the late Dr Saitoh was that of an LRP polymorphism that modifies the risk of AD, his major interests have been in the clinical, epidemiological and public health aspects of AD. His experience in the early 1970s as a clinician working with xxxii SCIENTISTS HONORED FOR PIONEERING RESEARCH older individuals with dementia, confirmed in his mind the frequency of AD in the elderly.

4 EPIDEMIOLOGY AND RISK FACTORS TIME BEFORE DEMENTIA DIAGNOSIS Due to the insidious onset of AD, the time of diagnosis is the only definite point in the initial phase of the disease. The time of diagnosis may be defined as the time when diagnostic criteria for dementia and AD are fulfilled. This time may be affected by several factors, including cultural, social, and medical conditions. The studies conducted so far have focused on early clinical phases, which correspond approximately to 1–2 years before or after diagnosis, and on the preclinical phase, defined as occurring more than 2 years before diagnosis.
