Ending Alzheimer’s Through Clinical Trials

  • 1Our clinical research explores whether medical strategies,
    treatments or devices are safe and effective for humans.
  • 2Working together, researchers and trial participants find answers
    only available through this type of research.
  • 3Many types of studies are underway to advance the prevention,
    early diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s.
  • 4Our innovative research network was formed to improve the clinical quality and quantity of
    volunteers seeking participation in trails and to speed their enrollment.

Clinical trials are providing hope, but so much more work is needed

We Are Making Great Strides

Recent Advances Against Alzheimer’s have Depended On Thousands Of Research Volunteers. Without Them, None Of These Would Have Happened:


Utilization of neuroimaging technologies to help detect Alzheimer’s


Identification of other biomarkers, such as blood and cerebral/spinal fluids


Genetics research to help identify those who have greater risk for developing Alzheimer’s


Medication and behavior modifications to help slow the progression of the disease

Our Research Network’s Featured Clinical Trials
