Dementia is the umbrella term used to refer to a number of different clinical presentations,each associated with distinct histopathological signatures of protein aggregates and spread.However, converging evidence now suggests the common co-occurences of dual/multiple proteinopathies across dementia syndromes.The present study will identify the clinical ramifications and factors that are most predictive for such proteinopathies in a large cohort of longitudinally-studied patients with dementia.
