PREVENT is a prospective cohort study examining biomarker status at mid-life genetically at high, medium or low risk of late-onset Alzheimer's Disease (AD). Participants are children of individuals with or without a diagnosed AD allocated to high, medium and low-risk groups according to parental clinical status and ApoE genotype. The biomarkers examined over 2 years are plasma and CSF Aβ42 amyloid, Tau and pTau, proinflammatory cytokines, acute-phase proteins, medial temporal-lobe atrophy, white matter lesion volume, cognitive performance related to transentorhinal and hippocampal functioning and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal and sympathetic axes regulation.
