Innovative strategy for dementia prediction and prevention
Prevention of Alzheimer's disease and dementia is a global priority requiring an innovative multimodal preventive approach. The EU-funded Brain Health Toolbox project will create a strategy to develop accurate dementia prediction and effective prevention. This includes employing disease models and prediction tools for prevention, prevention treatment trials, and bridging non-pharmacological and pharmacological approaches. Disease models and prediction tools will be multi-dimensional, with a broad range of risk factors and biomarker types included. Machine learning will profile the most important contributors to an individual’s overall risk level. The Brain Health Toolbox will cover the entire population of patients with preclinical disease stages, and it will provide tools for personalised decision making for dementia prevention.
