Lumbar Puncture Data Collection
Three separate and distinct surveys are included in the LP study database:
The first two surveys are brief and easy to complete, and will involve only a few people per ADC. The patient LP experience will report on all UDS subjects asked to undergo an LP during about two years of study; a designated patient coordinator will be required who will obtain the necessary data from subjects and medical records and complete the surveys. This particular study is sponsored by the Alzheimer's Association and will ultimately be analyzed along with data from the Global Biomarker Consortium survey conducted outside the U.S. (Blennow et al.).
