João Ferreira MEP submits written question on Alzheimer’s disease in European Parliament

Monday 05 August 2019

João Ferreira MEP (Portugal) has submitted a written question in the European Parliament, focusing on research on Alzheimer’s disease, as well as the disbanding of the Government Expert Group on Dementia. The first part of his question focuses on news reports related to the use of Enbrel and the data which was reported to have suggested some association between its use and a reduction in the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

There are then a number of strands to the question, including:

  • What (public and private) projects the EU supporting to tackle Alzheimer’s.
  • Why the Commission disbanded the Governmental Expert Group on Dementia.
  • Whether the Commission intended to encourage Member States to share expertise and best practices and to adopt national strategies to tackle Alzheimer’s.
