Alzheimer's disease research attracts first partner
Date:10/16/2008

Professor Ames says the study has already had success with neuro-imaging results showing that the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease can be brought forward by up to 18 months using a technique called PiB PET scans.

"This work places Australia at the forefront of neuro-imaging in Alzheimer's disease, but unfortunately, because of the large cost per scan it is unlikely at this stage to be useful for large population screening.

"Ultimately, we are working towards the 'holy grail' of Alzheimer's research, which is to find a simple blood test something which we hope this partnership will facilitate."

The Director of CSIRO's Preventative Health National Research Flagship, Dr Richard Head, says the progress made to date highlights the value of a national collaborative team working together on one of Australia's biggest community health challenges.

The AIBL Study of Ageing is a collaboration initiated by the CSIRO Preventative Health National Research Flagship involving; The University of Melbourne, Edith Cowan University - Western Australia, Neurosciences Australia, Mental Health Research Institute of Victoria and National Ageing Research Institute and the Preventative Health Flagship.The Australian eHealth Research Centre is also involved in developing image analysis methods designed to quantify the disease's progression .

National Research Flagships

CSIRO initiated the National Research Flagships to provide science-based solutions in response to Australia's major research challenges and opportunities. The nine Flagships form multidisciplinary teams with industry and the research community to deliver impact and benefits for Australia.
