In America alone, there are over 5 and a half million people over the age of 65 that are suffering with Alzheimer's.
And every 6 seconds in the USA, someone new develops Alzheimer's disease.
If you or someone you love is suffering from memory loss or Alzheimer's disease, we invite you to see if you qualify to take part in a clinical research study that will help the delay and treatment of symptoms associated with these diseases.
As we age, we tend to become more forgetful in our day to day life. Although the cause of Alzheimer’s is still unknown, scientists are continuing their research in the treatment and delay of memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease symptoms.
Some common signs and symptoms include
Clinical research trials give us the opportunity to better understand, diagnose and treat different illnesses, like memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease.
Scientists and researches are able to compare the benefits of various medical treatments, drugs and long-term care plans.
With the combined efforts of researchers and clinical study participants, we hope to find better medications for future generations.
A clinical trial, also referred to as a research study, is a scientific study that evaluates the safety and efficacy of an investigational medication. A research study may show that the investigational medication is better than, as good as, or worse than the standard treatment or inactive placebo. Qualified doctors, nurses and other medical professionals will conduct the study.
It is only through the completion of research studies that investigational medication can be evaluated, and if proven safe and effective, approved for general use by appropriate regulatory or health authorities, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Prescription medications in use today were first proven safe and effective in research studies.
The study team respects and protects the participant’s privacy. The study team will not share the participant’s information except as required by law. The study team will store the participant’s personal information with codes that do not identify the participant. The Informed Consent Form has more information about the participant’s privacy.
Yes, your involvement in the study is voluntary. The participant may stop participating at any time. If the participant decides to stop early, please notify the study team. The study team will ask the participant to return to the study office at least once for follow up tests to check the participant's health once the investigational medication has been stopped.
What happens if I sign up? We will match you to a clinical trial that needs Volunteers with Memory Loss, Alzheimer's disease or Dementia or notify you when one becomes available. They will contact you and you may then have the opportunity to participate.
