Edin Begić, MD, MA, from the Dr Abdulah Nakaš General Hospital Sarajevo, together with his colleagues established that a marker of heart failure, B-type natriuretic peptide, can also be a marker of cognitive disorders in Alzheimer’s dementia.

Scientific research must be relevant to the clinical work that we perform on everyday basis – without it, our everyday work would become a routine as it would not lead to any improvement in the clinical care which we must provide to our patients. Scientific endeavour creates a desire in a doctor to continuously improve their work. The International Medis Awards represent scientific Oscars in this part of the Europe, and acknowledge medical publications and the researchers behind them, thereby raising awareness about the value of medical-type investigations whose main aim is improvement of the human quality of life and wellbeing.
