One of our biggest learnings, after several efforts that didn’t yield the result that we hope for, was that we probably wanted to intervene much earlier. We see there is an opportunity to affect the disease early before significant damage is done and give these disease modifying drugs a chance to show what they can…Details
This project has numerous advantages over current approaches. These include the excellent pre-trial characterisation of research participants to inform selection and reduce screen failure, the establishment of the highest possible quality study sites across Europe, the rapid decision making on the likely success of a drug (or combination of drugs) in subsequent confirmatory trials as…Details
Preventing the development of dementia in biomarker-positive people would be a fantastic step forward in our fight against Alzheimer’s disease. The EPAD and its novel trial concept will hopefully help speed up the drug discovery progress and bring us closer to this ambitious aim.
EPAD is part of a global initiative that will make a fundamental difference to the understanding and management of Alzheimer’s disease in people with very early or no symptoms at all. This could be a game-changer. It is only possible because of the absolute commitment of academics, industry, policy makers and the public to work…
