EPAD project publishes a paper investigating the ATN classification scheme in a population without dementia

Saturday 03 April 2021

A new article from the European Prevention of Alzheimer's Dementia (EPAD) consortium entitled “Application of the ATN classification scheme in a population without dementia: Findings from the EPAD cohort" has recently been published in Alzheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association.

The ATN framework is a method to classify and characterise Alzheimer’s disease through evaluation of β amyloid deposition (A), pathologic tau (T), and neurodegeneration (N). In this article, the ATN classification was operationalized in the first 1500 participants consented in the EPAD cohort, a deeply phenotyped cohort of individuals who do not have dementia. Congratulations to the authors! You can read the paper here.

The ATN classification has been added for public use to the analytical database of the EPAD Longitudinal Cohort Study (LCS). This analytical database includes all of the clinical, cognitive and biomarker measurements of recruited participants according to the EPAD LCS protocol, collected and curated according to high quality standards. EPAD has made this database open access and publicly available to the research community. To access to it, please visit the EPAD website:
