CAMD Data Standards Announcement

CDISC Alzheimer’s Disease Therapeutic Area Data Standard User Guide v 2.0 Now Available for Public Review – Comments Due 6 November 2013

The CFAST Alzheimer’s team is pleased to announce the availability of the Alzheimer’s v 2.0 Draft Data Standard for a 30-day public review. The CDISC Alzheimer’s User Guide describes the most common clinical concepts relevant to studies of Alzheimer’s disease and Mild Cognitive Impairment, and shows examples of how these concepts are represented in the Study Data Tabulation Model (SDTM). The content of this update focuses on three major areas: cognition, cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers, and imaging biomarkers (volumetric MRI, FDG-PET and amyloid imaging via PET/CT). Additionally, some content represented in v 1.0 has been updated to reflect current conventions in SDTM. This version is intended to completely replace v 1.0.  

This content of this guide was developed with clinical/scientific subject matter expert input from several members of CAMD.
