Human Amyloid Imaging Conference 2019
A representation of Fundació ACE headed by Dr. Mercè Boada, medical director of the organization, has traveled to Miami to take part in the 13th Human Amyloid Imaging Congress. This conference, which took place in January 16th – 18th, is focused on the study of the presence of amyloid protein in the brain, related to the onset of Alzheimer's disease.
During the conference, the Foundation's specialists had the opportunity to present a poster about FACEHBI (ACE Healthy Brain Initiative Foundation), a European research project led by Fundació ACE that studies through different techniques the changes appearing over the years in people before they start to have the symptoms of Alzheimer's (preclinical phase of the disease).
The goal of the study is to identify the best tools to perform an early diagnosis of the dementia process and to be able to implement therapies before the brain damage becomes irreversible.
