Clinical trials, brain imaging, biomarkers, and intervention studies drew more than 4,000 researchers to the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference 2014 at the Copenhagen Congress Center in Demark. Data from Phase 2 clinical trials of crenezumab, an anti-Aβ antibody, disappointed, but positive results from a large Finish intervention study raised hope that lifestyle changes can pay dividends toward preventing dementia. The Alzheimer's Prevention Initiative announced a new partnership with Novartis to test if an active Aβ vaccine or a BACE inhibitor can slow or prevent sporadic Alzheimer's in people who are genetically predisposed to the disease.
