A great opportunity for presenting both EPAD and its sister project AMYPAD happened in Boston where the 10th Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease (CTAD) conference took place from 1 to 4 November.
AMYPAD works closely with the EPAD project, which is working to increase the understanding of the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and creating a platform to test treatments designed to prevent dementia. The AMYPAD Prognostic and Natural History Study (PNHS) is planned as a sub-study of the EPAD Longitudinal Cohort Study (LCS). In the AMYPAD PNHS study, participants enrolled in the EPAD LCS will undergo PET amyloid imaging.
We are delighted that AMYPAD was mentioned in a plenary lecture entitled “The European Prevention of Alzheimer’s Dementia (EPAD) and Amyloid Imaging for Prevention of Alzheimer’s Dementia (AMYPAD) Projects: Cohort Readiness for the Adaptive Clinical Trial Platform.”
Craig Ritchie (pictured) from The University of Edinburgh (EPAD Coordinator and AMYPAD WP4 co-lead) presented the first data analysis from EPAD LCS at CTAD.
