There are still not so many clinical trials in AD being undertaken in India, although there are experienced PIs who are eager to be involved in international clinical trials. Indian pharma industry continues to acquire modern infrastructure and imaging tools and also evaluates other methods, such as biomarkers, to boost AD treatment in India.The importance of all stakeholders to understand the newest tools and techniques for effective and meaningful research in reducing the dementia load in South Asia was emphasized during the conference.
