The purpose of the AVID study is to evaluate the safety and imaging characteristics of an investigational PET imaging agent that binds to a protein called tau. Being able to measure tau protein is of considerable importance for tracking brain changes associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
This new PET tracer has potential application as a marker for assessing disease severity and may be useful in selecting patients for therapy and for monitoring disease progression.
Individuals at least 50 years of age with Mild Cognitive Impairment or Alzheimer’s disease may be eligible for this study.
