[Correspondence] Pointing the FINGER at multimodal dementia prevention

Findings from observational studies have shown several modifiable risk factors for subsequent cognitive impairment and dementia. Clinical trials are an imperative next step to test cause and effect; however, results from the mostly single intervention studies have been disappointing so far. The FINGER trial,1 in which investigators combined lifestyle advice, management of cardiovascular disease risk, and cognitive training in a multimodal intervention for patients aged 60–77 years, is therefore a welcome addition to the small evidence base.
