Alzeimer disease is a daunting nightmare to both the medical and families of the patients. Tireless efforts are made by the medical researchers to treat Alzheimer’s patients. The Alzhiemer patients’ data provides clues about its prognosis and they can be identifies when the data are analyzed and understood correctly. The data analysis is a first step in the path to breakthrough treatment. Towards this aim, this article introduces a new statistical distribution and calls it Down-Upsized Incidence Poisson Distribution (DUIPD). The properties of DUIPD are obtained and illustrated to interpret the patterns in the prognosis of two group of Alzheimer’s patients. In one group, the patients received a doseage of lecithin and other in the control group received placebo drug.
