Spina Bifida with APOE e4 and Correlates of Alzheimer's Disease - Clinical Trial
What is the Purpose of this Study?
We want to learn more about people with spina bifida and their risk of developing dementia if they have the APOE e4 gene.
Who Can Participate in the Study?
Children and adults of any age who have spina bifida and are willing to provide a cheek swab for genetic testing.
Adults ages 18+ who currently have a right-sided shunt may be eligible to participate in a sub-study that involves imaging, a blood draw, and cognitive testing.
