The digital platform will be used collate both positron emission tomography (PET) and MRI scans from centres across Europe.  This data will be then assessed using IXICO's image analysis system, which has been customised to evaluate patient eligibility, assess target engagement and quantify drug effects in Alzheimer's patients. The trial is being run by Araclon Biotech and is designed to establish the dosage regimen, as well as confirm the safety and tolerability data obtained in phase I.
