Territory Position: St. Louis West ADDC 156080

Lilly's ongoing research and commercial efforts in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) present one of the most exciting opportunities in the history of the company. There is currently a significant, growing, and intense unmet need across all key players. AD is the sixth leading cause of death in the US, and of the top 10 causes of death, it is the only disease with an increasing mortality rate and the only one that cannot be prevented, cured, or even slowed.

Lilly’s goal is to make the dementia associated with the disease preventable.

Diagnostics will play a critical role in preparing for the potential launch of Alzheimer’s disease modifying therapies.
