National Prion Clinic


UK database

Because iatrogenic cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) has only recently been recognised, there are many things that we do not know about the condition.

One way in which we are trying to find out more is by creating a research database of people who are diagnosed with iatrogenic CAA in the United Kingdom. This will allow us to establish how many people are affected and which medical procedures iatrogenic CAA is associated with. We also plan to use this database to contact people with iatrogenic CAA about future research studies that might be of interest to you. Being part of the database does not commit you to taking part in any future studies.

This project is led by Dr Gargi Banerjee, Clinical Lecturer in Neurology at the MRC Prion Unit at UCL. It has been approved by the South West - Central Bristol Research Ethics Committee (Reference 21/SW/0052).
