Dear Colleague,


Our call for abstracts will open in March for the 7th Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease (CtaD) to be held November 5-7, 2015 in Barcelona, Spain.


After the success of CtaD 2014 this past November in Philadelphia with over 750 participants we are looking forward to making CtaD 2015 scientifically and clinically challenging!


Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most important health challenges facing aging populations worldwide. The development of the next generation of Alzheimer’s disease drugs is becoming essential to face up to this challenge. We learned of new pathways identified with tau biomarkers as well as molecular and functional imaging markers in AD secondary prevention trials, non-pharmacological clinical trials to prevent Alzheimer’s disease, health economics outcomes in preventive AD trials as well as experiences of many teams involved directly in the AD clinical trial process from animal models to Phase III and IV trials.


This year again CTAD 2015 has designed its call for abstract and program for oral communications and poster presentations around the following themes :


  1. Clinical trials: Methodology
  2. Clinical Trials: Results
  3. Clinical Trials: Imaging
  4. Clinical Trials: Biomarkers
  5. Clinical Trials: Cognitive Endpoints
  6. Clinical Trials: Cognitive assessment
  7. Clinical Trials: Behavioral disorders
  8. Clinical Trials: Health Economics
  9. Clinical Trials: Epidemiological
  10. Clinical Trials: Animal model
  11. Clinical Trials: New therapies
  12. Clinical Trials: Others

The deadline to submit a symposium, oral communication or poster presentation is June 1st, 2015


We look forward to seeing you in Barcelona!
