2 Finding the right patients – prodromal AD
Alzheimers disease Hint of subgroup in mild AD with Solenuzemab Finding the right patients – prodromal AD Selection of patients at appropriate disease stage Identifcation of prognostic markers + using these appropriately Enabling simple/peripheral measurement of central effects
