EPAD is establishing a Europe-wide cohort of over 6,000 participants, of which 1,500 will be invited to participate in a trial to test new treatments for prevention of Alzheimer’s dementia.
The EPAD Longitudinal Cohort Study (EPAD-LCS) opened for recruitment in May 2016. It is a core part of the EPAD project that links participants in other cohorts and registers across Europe. A first wave of Trial Delivery Centres (TDCs) opened in Edinburgh (UK), Barcelona (Spain), Toulouse (France) and Amsterdam (The Netherlands).
We are now very pleased to announce that the EPAD-LCS study has begun a Wave 2 of its TDCs, with centres opening for recruitment in San Sebastian (Spain) and Stockholm (Sweden).
As of 21 July 2017, 276 research participants have been enrolled into the EPAD-LCS across six TDCs in five European countries. Other additional centres are already certified and will open shortly.
