The Sant Pau Memory Unit attended the annual Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC 2018) that was held in Chicago between July 22nd and 26th 2018. This conference, the largest dedicated to Alzheimer’s disease, gathers researchers from all over the world that share their knowledge and advances in the field.
Here is the list of communications that we shared in the conference:
Daniel Alcolea – Correlation between INNOTEST and the fully automated LUMIPULSE G platform for the analysis of ß-amyloid 1-42 and total Tau
Laura Cervera – Identification of microRNAs from extracellular vesicles as potential biomarkers for frontotemporal dementia
Ignacio Illán-Gala – Challenges associated with biomarker-based classification systems for Alzheimer’s diesase
Olivia Belbin – The cerebrospinal fluid profile of a synaptic protein panel across the entire Alzheimer’s disease continuum
Victor Montal – Cortical mean diffusivity is more sensitive in frontotemporal dementia than cortical thickness
Maria Carmona-Iragui – Cerebrospinal fluid core biomarkers allow an accurate diagnosis of Alzheimer disease in Down syndrome
Eduard Vilaplana – Early inflammation and microstructural cortical changes in familial autosomal-dominant Alzheimer’s disease
During the pre-conference sessions, Dr. Juan Fortea was designated as Program Director of the Down Syndrome – Alzheimer’s disease Professional Interest Area (PIA) of the International Society to Advance Alzheimer’s Research and Treatment (ISTAART).
