ADCS

Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study. An initiative for Alzheimer's disease (AD) clinical studies by the US Federal government, addressing treatments for both cognitive and behavioral symptoms through a consortium of medical research centres and clinics located at 83 sites in the US and Canada. The ADCS is coordinated by the University of California, San Diego, and supported by the National Institute on Aging. The ADCS hopes to develop improved diagnostic tools and test various drugs to slow down the progression of autosomal dominant or prevent AD altogether.
