Clinical Studies

Dementia with Lewy Bodies

Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) is a complex form of dementia affecting memory, thinking, movement, and behavior. It's caused by abnormal protein deposits in the brain that disrupt its function. There's currently no cure, and treatment focuses on managing symptoms such as hallucinations, fluctuations in alertness, and movement difficulties.

Clinical trials offer a crucial opportunity to advance DLB research and improve the lives of patients. By participating in a study, you directly contribute to finding better treatments and potentially even a cure.

We'd love to partner with you.
