Some of the best information regarding trials for Alzheimer’s and dementia clinical surveys is from Trial Match (listed below), a service of the Alzheimer’s Association. Trial Watch has Alzheimer’s and dementia trials carefully selected from ClinicalTrials.gov (also listed below). But here are some other great resources that provide information about the risks of benefits and trials, as well as links to pages to find trials not strictly related to Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
Clinical Trial Resources
- Trial Match:
A service of the Alzheimer’s Association which helps to match patients and their loved ones with medical researchers who are exploring Alzheimer’s and dementia treatments.
- Miami Jewish Health Systems Alzheimer’s and Dementia Trials:
The acclaimed Miami Jewish Health System is eagerly seeking participants for studies on Alzheimer’s and dementia.
- Reasons to Participate in Clinical Trials:
Alzheimer’s patients who participate in trials receive access to free, top of the line medical care and benefit society by helping researchers discover what does and does not work as an Alzheimer’s treatment. Because medical trials are inherently a foray into the unknown, the possible benefits must be weighed against the risks and inconveniences.
- Clinical Trials and You (National Institute of Health):
