NIH awards grant to Banner Alzheimer's Institute for major prevention study
Date:9/18/2013

In collaboration with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Banner Alzheimer's Institute (BAI) announces a major prevention trial to evaluate a treatment in cognitively healthy older adults at the highest known genetic risk for developing Alzheimer's disease at older ages. An NIH grant, expected to total $33.2 million, will support this research. (NIA support: AG 046150-01)

The study is part of the Alzheimer's Prevention Initiative (API), an international collaboration led by BAI to accelerate the evaluation of promising but unproven prevention therapies. It will test an anti-amyloid treatment in about 650 adults, ages 60-75, who have two copies of the apolipoprotein E (APOE4) gene, the major genetic risk factor for late-onset Alzheimer's. None of the participants will have impairments in memory or thinking at the time they enter the study.

"Once again, we are extremely grateful to the NIH for the opportunity to help accelerate the evaluation of treatments to prevent the clinical onset of Alzheimer's and find ones that work as soon as possible," said Dr. Eric M. Reiman, BAI Executive Director. "This trial will allow us to extend our work to individuals at greatest risk at older ages."

The randomized, placebo-controlled trial, which will take place at BAI and other U.S. sites, will test the treatment's ability to stave off the memory and thinking declines associated with Alzheimer's. It will also assess the treatment's effects on different brain imaging and cerebrospinal fluid measurements of the disease. The specific compound to be evaluated has not been decided.

The trial will test what is often called the amyloid hypothesis, which suggests that accumulation of the protein amyloid in the brain plays a key role in the disease's progression. Major funding from philanthropy and industry will also support the trial, and its leaders expect to provide data and biological samples to the research community after the trial's co
