DIAN Trial

The Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer's Network (DIAN) is an international group of researchers focused on understanding a genetic cause of Alzheimer's in the hope that their findings can be applied towards those who suffer other forms of dementia.  The network is conducting a study to see if they can identify biomarkers of Alzheimer's from the adult children of individuals who have been diagnosed with an inherited form of Alzheimer's.  The study began in 2009 and will be completed in 2014.

It will be several years before the study is finished and more years before the results can be integrated possible treatments.  However, the researchers and study participants hope to help find a possible treatment for the disease.
