Study Description

Multiplex Family Study
The purpose of the NIA Genetics Initiative: Multiplex Family Study is to identify families with multiple members diagnosed with late-onset Alzheimer's Disease.

If a blood sample is not available, autopsy samples will be collected for DNA extraction and storage. Our goal is to recruit 1,000 families over the course of the study. Clinical and demographic data from these families will be collected at the local site and coded data, without identifiers, will be sent and included in a national database of families with Alzheimer's Disease. This database, along with the biological samples, will be housed at the National Cell Repository for Alzheimer's Disease (NCRAD) at Indiana University. The Center or provider and the Cell Repository must sign a Material Transfer Agreement for shipment of biological samples and phenotypic data to NCRAD. The biological samples and data from these families will be available to qualified ... (Show More)
