Diabetes as an accelerator of cognitive deterioration and Alzheimer’s disease, boarding and adherence

Objective: Prevention of Alzheimer disease in patients with diabetes

The project is based on epidemiological data confirming that patients with diabetes have 2 to 3 times higher prevalence of severe cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease than non-diabetic population comparable in age. To address this reality, the project proposes a comprehensive approach ranging from basic to clinical observational research, and it includes a pilot intervention study.

Innovation: Multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach to treatment intelligence

Expected result: Obtaining an intelligent dispenser prototype and a digital platform integrating data for the identification of risk profiles.
