Clinical Trials are the only way to find a cure.
What are Clinical Trials?
Clinical trials are research studies conducted on people to determine if treatments are safe and effective.
Clinical trials are the only way to find a cure or new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease.
There are many types of clinical trials: treatment, diagnostic, prevention, screening and quality of life.
Why Should You Get Involved?
To gain access to potential treatments before they are widely available.
To contribute to the effort of finding more effective treatments for neurological disease.
To help myself and benefit others.
Today at least 70,000 volunteer participants are needed for more than 150 Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia clinical trials. More than 500,000 people must be screened to meet this number. There are trials recruiting people with Alzheimer’s disease, as well as healthy volunteers.
How do trials work? Why participate?
What are the risks? What progress has been made?
