    Research Abstract

    The aims of the present project are to develop novel Positron Emission Tomography (PET) ligands targeting soluble oligomers/protofibrils of amyloid ? protein (A?) and to develop
    biochemical assays to measure these species of A? in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Such tools would enable us to:
    * Follow disease progression in early Alzheimer’s disease (AD) cases
    * Quantify therapeutic effects of novel treatments
    * Identify Alzheimer cases with diffuse plaque pathology
