DIAN, an international collaboration involving 11 leading Alzheimer's research centers in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, was established in 2008 to investigate an autosomal dominant form of Alzheimer's disease caused by rare genetic mutations in either amyloid precursor protein (APP), or presenilin 1 (PSEN1) or 2 (PSEN2) that virtually ensure a carrier will develop the disease before they reach their 50s - and perhaps as early as their 20s or 30s.
