The 14th CTAD conference returned to Boston as a hybrid meeting, reuniting colleagues long separated by COVID, while also streaming most of the scientific program to viewers around the world. The conference featured morsels of news in the effort to move anti-amyloid antibodies past imbursement barriers at the CMS, and through the approval process at the FDA, respectively. Tau antibodies mostly came up short again, and a platform trial is forming to take on this complex target more systematically. Plasma biomarkers continued their rapid advance. Digital versions of known and new cognitive tests drew note, as did AI-based projects to detect subtle changes in a person’s speech.
