Study to Evaluate Amyloid in Blood and Imaging Related to Dementia (SEABIRD)

Start: April 2019
End: August 2023
Enrollment: 1120

What Is This Study About?

This study will evaluate a blood test for detecting amyloid-beta, a protein involved in Alzheimer's disease, in older adults. Researchers are recruiting people with and without memory problems to investigate the ability of the blood test to detect this protein in order to screen people for early signs of the disease. Participants will undergo blood collection and cognitive testing, and may be asked to undergo brain imaging.
