What is the main purpose of AMYPAD?

The Amyloid imaging to prevent Alzheimer’s disease (AMYPAD) project aims to determine the clinical utility of ß-amyloid PET imaging for the understanding, diagnosis and management of Alzheimer’s disease. Moreover, in combination with the European Prevention of Alzheimer’s disease (EPAD) study, the project aims at unraveling the natural history of the disease in the preclinical or presymptomatic stage to assess the predictive value of ß-amyloid PET and ensure correct enrollment of patients into targeted treatment trials.
