Welcome to AMYPAD!

We are a collaborative research initiative aiming to improve the understanding, diagnosis and management of Alzheimer’s disease through the utilisation of ß-amyloid PET imaging.

The Amyloid imaging to prevent Alzheimer’s disease (AMYPAD) initiative aims to:

"At this moment, there is a massive effort to better understand the natural history of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), as well to improve its management. These efforts wish to increase the chances of success for future clinical trials by allowing them to target populations at the early stages of the disease, when the damage could still be reversed. AMYPAD comes to provide valuable insight on a fundamental piece of the AD puzzle: the accumulation of β-amyloid plaques. We will be doing so by determining the role and value of amyloid imaging in disease diagnosis, prognosis, and potential for treatment monitoring - which will be a crucial step forward in the global fight against AD.” Frederik Barkhof
