The clinical trial is a collaborative effort involving Genentech, Inc., National Institutes of Health, The Banner Alzheimers Institute and Universidad de Antioquia. The trial will include about 300 participants in Colombia, home to a kindred of nearly 5,000 people who share a rare genetic mutation that triggers Alzheimer's symptoms at an early age.
