The European Prevention of Alzheimer’s Dementia (EPAD) project launched its second video about amyloid.
This animation movie tries to explain what we currently understand about amyloid and how it relates to dementia. EPAD Research Participants may be invited to take part in a clinical trial if test results suggest abnormal levels of a protein called amyloid. If abnormal levels are present, it may mean that person has a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s dementia in later life.
The three minutes animated video is available on the EPAD YouTube channel, which includes also the introduction movie launched on March 2017. Both videos have been developed in English as well as additional languages.
The EPAD project has received support from the Innovative Medicines Initiative Joint Undertaking under grant agreement n° 115736, resources of which are composed of financial contribution from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) and EFPIA companies’ in kind contribution.
