European Prevention of Alzheimer’s Dementia is a collaborative research initiative to improve the chance of successfully preventing Alzheimer’s dementia. The Europe-wide study aims to recruit thousands of people, of which many may be selected to participate in trials to test new treatments for the prevention of Alzheimer’s dementia.The EPAD Longitudinal Cohort Study began recruitment in May 2016 and this month the EPAD project has reached an important milestone: 500 research participant screened.

Currently, the EPAD LSC is recruiting at 12 study sites, and several new trial delivery centers will be open in the following weeks.
