View All Open Studies

“LMI” Tau Detection Study
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness and safety of a new injection—given in conjunction with a PET scan—to help detect tau protein in the brain. Early detection could help with the diagnostic process, as well as the treatment of, Alzheimer's disease.
Early Alzheimer’s Study
The purpose of this study is to find out if the study drug can slow or reverse early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. Some research has shown that people with Alzheimer’s disease have damage to the blood vessels in their brain. It is thought this new investigational drug may help the blood vessels in your brain work better.
Sensory Stimulation Alzheimer’s Study
The main purpose of this study is to see whether daily use of a device—called the "Sensory Stimulation System"—can help people with Alzheimer's-related memory problems. The device provides sensory stimulation via glasses worn on the face and headphones worn over the ears.
“Avanir” Alzheimer’s Agitation Trial
This study evaluates a new medication to treat agitation in people with Alzheimer's disease. It is hoped this potential treatment could reduce caregiver burden and improve overall disease prognosis.
