In common with all Cochrane Review Groups, the Cochrane Dementia Group maintains a specialised register to bring together information about controlled dementia trials in place.  Its aim is not just to help Cochrane review authors, clinicians and researchers, but to be a one-stop-shop for anyone to go to find out about what research has been done, and is being planned into the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease and the other causes of dementia.

The Cochrane Dementia Group is unusual in having given our specialized register a name, ALOIS (pronounced Al-oh-iss) – named after Alois Alzheimer:

And we are also unusual in having created a community of volunteers to help us keep this invaluable database, up-to-date, and content rich.

So that’s what we do, but how do we do it?  Click here to find out more about the ALOIS Community volunteer project.
