Scarlet Road Study
The Scarlet Road Study is now running at Glasgow Memory Clinic.
This new Alzheimer Vaccine Study is designed to identify people in the very early stages of Alzheimer's Disease - called Prodromal Alzheimer's Disease.
People aged between 50 and 85 years who are concerned about a decline in memory function and who are receiving no current treatment for memory impairment or Alzheimer's Disease can be considered for screeing for the study.
The screeing process identifies individuals with memory impairment who are thought to be in the prodromal stage of Alzheimer's disease. The study is testing a new vaccive to see if it can prevent decline in memory and general functional ability.
The final screening test measures a specific protein in spinal fluid - this biomarker test helps identify people who have memory impairment that is likely to deteriorate.
This international study is running in 15 countries including Canada, France, Italy and Germany.
Glasgow Memory Clinic is the only centre in Scotland participating in the study.
The clinic began Alzheimer Vaccine work in 2007 and is the only centre in Scotland with expertise in this field of medical research.
