Read the latest news about Alfa Study, the research platform at the Barcelonaβeta Brain Research Center (BBRC) to identify early pathophysicological characteristics of Alzheimer's disease to develop prevention strategies.
In the research, led by the BBRC, 250 people without cognitive alterations from the ALFA Study, promoted by the ”la Caixa” Foundation, have participated.
More than 900 people without cognitive alterations from the Alfa Study, which has the support of the "la Caixa" Foundation, have participated in the research.

Researchers at the Barcelonaβeta Brain Research Center (BBRC) have identified that people with amyloid pathology and subjective cognitive impairment have an increase in light neurofilaments (NfL) in the cerebrospinal fluid and a lower volume in the hippocampus.
The team of the research center of the Pasqual Maragall Foundation presents 6 oral communications and 15 posters, and participates in about fifteen international collaborations
A study led by the BBRC, with the support of the “la Caixa” Foundation, suggests that people at increased risk of developing Alzheimer's experience weight loss that would precede cognitive impairment.
The BBRC and the Pasqual Maragall Foundation publish an animated video to thank the effort of the participants, and of all the people and entities that support the research
A study led by the BBRC has found that people without cognitive problems but with a higher genetic risk of developing Alzheimer's have certain areas of the brain more resilient to the disease if they are accustomed to consuming a nutrient provided by blue fish.
A team of researchers from the AMYPAD consortium, led at BBRC, showed that the visual assessment used in clinical practice to evaluate amyloid PET images is sensitive to detecting the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s disease, and suggests a method to classify the extent of the pathology in the brain.
