The Gipuzkoa Alzheimer Project (PGA) is a longitudinal study on pre-clinical Alzheimer’s disease. This study aims to investigate the prevalence, clinical, cognitive and neuroimaging features and potential risk factors related to cardiovascular health and lifestyles for pre-clinical AD in asymptomatic (or very mildly symtopmatic, e.g. SCD) subjects from the community.
Follow-up Scheduled every 3 years for a minimum of 12 years. The first 3-year follow-up was completed in June 2015.

Second follow-up visit (6 yrs) to be started in April 2017.
