Advancing Research and Treatment for Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration
Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (FTLD) is the neuropathological term for a collection of rare neurodegenerative diseases that correspond to four main overlapping clinical syndromes: frontotemporal dementia (FTD), primary progressive aphasia (PPA), corticobasal degeneration syndrome (CBS) and progressive supranuclear palsy syndrome (PSPS). The goal of this study is to build a FTLD clinical research consortium to support the development of FTLD therapies for new clinical trials. This study is observational and requires a one-time visit, referred to as the Baseline visit. All ARTFL participants will co-enroll into the Alzheimer's Disease Core Center study.
