Patients’ priorities will be brought to the fore in new Alzheimer’s project | NICE
NICE is taking part in a European project to speed up the development of new drugs to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
The ROADMAP initiative aims to establish a sustainable platform for real world evidence generation on Alzheimer’s disease.
The new project provides a unique and game-changing opportunity to gather evidence from other sources, such as electronic health records, and discover what outcomes are important to patients and carers.
Alzheimer’s disease, and the different ways it presents and progresses in different people, poses a difficulty for traditional clinical trials which do not always provide answers decision makers such as NICE would be looking for when assessing new drugs to treat the disease.
