Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Administrative Supplements for Connecting Pre-mortem Clinical Information with Post-Mortem Brain Analysis

Application Deadline: 26-Oct-2020

Summary: The Lewy Body Dementias (LBD) are frequently misdiagnosed or underdiagnosed during life, and despite the development of diagnostic criteria at multiple expert consensus conferences, the gold standard for diagnosis remains post-mortem brain analysis. Improvement in diagnostic accuracy during life, and the development of good quality diagnostic biomarkers, would be greatly facilitated if comprehensive, longitudinal clinical and biological data obtained on patients during life were regularly linked with detailed post-mortem brain examination.  In response to recommendations from the Alzheimer's Disease Related Dementias (ADRD) Summits convened by the NINDS in 2013, 2016, and 2019, longitudinal clinical data and biospecimens are being collected from patients with LBD and shared with the research community through the Parkinson’s Disease Biomarker Program (PDBP).  The PDBP is an NINDS-funded resource that collects standardized clinical data and biospecimens longitudinally on patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD) and PD-related disorders (including LBD) with the goal of accelerating the pace of biomarkers research. The PDBP currently has data and biospecimens on about 1900 subjects, some of whom have gone to autopsy, though relatively little post-mortem data on these subjects is available in PDBP at this time.
