Living with early onset Alzheimer's disease: Research

A guide to resources to assist people diagnosed with early onset AD to live a full life.

In Australia research into early onset AD is focused on understanding the pathology of the disease, new treatments, prevention and early diagnosis. The build-up of beta amyloid plaque in the brain is considered the most likely cause of AD and researchers are currently trialing drugs globally in an effort to halt or slow down progress of the disease. In early 2018 a world -first blood test that can detect AD years before the symptoms of dementia emerge was announced.

In this section of the Guide are details of current research trials that individuals can search and sign up for; links to leading research websites in the field; and database and peer-reviewed journal articles including relevant keyword search terms.
