One of the greatest ways you can help move Alzheimer's research forward is by participating in a research study. Without research, there can be no prevention, no new treatments and no cure. By volunteering to be part of a clinical trial, you can make a difference.
Right now, at least 50,000 volunteers are urgently needed to participate in more than 100 actively enrolling clinical trials about Alzheimer's and related dementias. Trials are recruiting people with Alzheimer's, as well as healthy volunteers to be controls. Many experts believe there will be significant breakthroughs in Alzheimer's research in the near future, but this cannot be accomplished without volunteers. Recruiting and retaining trial participants is now the greatest obstacle, other than funding, to developing the next generation of Alzheimer's treatments.
