Research abstract in English

This research line comprises both pharmaceutical clinical trials and non-pharmaceutical interventions. The clinical trials (mostly contract research) occur in the Alzheimer Research Center, a separate, but linked unit specially dedicated to the execution of clinical trials. We also perform a number of self-initiated, non-pharmaceutical trials focussing on the effect of nutrition (medical food).

Lay summary

This line of research focuses on finding new ways to treat Alzheimer. We employ pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical approaches, amongst which nutritional interventions. We design these trials in a placebo-controlled fashion and focus on early onset patients as well as prodromal AD patients.
