Cerebral spinal fluid collection of Normal Pressure Hydrocephaly for Alzheimer's disease research

We are collecting cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) from Normal Pressure Hydrocephaly (NPH) patients to generate a biosample research repository. This repository will be used to research CSF biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease that may enhance our ability to detect and monitor Alzheimer's disease diagnoses and progression.

Duke/UNC Alzheimer's Disease Clinical Cohort

The purpose of the study is to establish a Clinical Cohort (group) of research participants to examine normal cognition, mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease and related disorders (ADRD) as people get older. We will be measuring changes in your memory and the way you process information as you age. As part of the study, you will be asked to participate in yearly evaluations of your memory and health. You will have brain imagining done by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), a lumbar puncture and blood will be drawn at some visits. Also, as part of this research you must designate a "project partner." This should be someone who is familiar with your health and will be able to provide information about your health and wellbeing as appropriate.
