Patient Recruitment Update, December 2021

Patient Recruitment Update, December 2021

The fully characterised NeuroMET patient cohort and data associated to it are an invaluable European and international resource to carry out longitudinal studies and validate methods and biomarkers.

Since 2016, over 100 patients across Alzheimer's Disease, Mild Cognitive Impairment, Subjective Cognitive Decline, and Healthy Controls have been recruited to the cohort which is maintained by Charité in Berlin. Longitudinal assessments are now into their fourth yearly iteration.

The chart below shows the cumulative baseline and follow up assessments across the study to date. Despite the challenges to recruitment and follow-up presented by COVID-19, the cohort continues to grow, further augmenting this important NDD research resource.
