What is the Dominantly Inherited Alzheimner's Network (DIAN) Study?
DIAN is an international research partnership of leading scientists determined to understand a rare form of Alzheimer’s disease that is caused by a gene mutation.
What is the Purpose of DIAN?
Understanding of this form of Alzheimer's disease may provide clues to decoding other dementias and developing dementia treatments.
DIAN is currently enrolling study participants who are biological adult children of a parent with a gene known to cause a rare, early onset form of Alzheimer’s disease. Such individuals may or may not carry the gene themselves and may or may not have disease symptoms. If you suspect that your family is affected by this disease you may be eligible for genetic testing.
