Ireland Set To Become Hub Of Alzheimer's Research

Trinity College Dublin has joined hands with Florida-based Roskamp Institute to conduct a study on the blood pressure drug Nilvadipine and its possible use in Alzheimer's disease. //

The Dublin Ageing Research Network (DARN). Doctors of Geriatrics and Old Age Psychiatry from St James’ Hospital, Beaumont Hospital, James Connolly Memorial Hospital, Loughlinstown, Mater Hospital, Saint Vincent’s Hospital, the Adelaide and Meath Hospital and St Patrick’s Hospital will all assist in the study.

Professor Brian Lawlor MD welcomed this new venture. “This is a significant development not just for Trinity College but for brain aging research in Ireland," he said. "Already it has enabled us to form the Dublin Ageing Research Network comprising doctors in geriatrics and old age psychiatry from the major Dublin hospitals to work on this important clinical study, which could lead to an innovative approach to a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease."

He added that if the two-year trial was successful, it could very well change the direction of treating dementia.
