CLINICAL TRIALS

Why participate in a clinical trial? We can’t advance science to help cure Alzheimer’s without participating in trials that test the efficacy and safety of drugs and clinical protocols. Use this page as a resource to find the right trial for you. We’re including a link to register for trials that might be taking place near you.

 

Ongoing Trials That Need Your Help:

 

A Donanemab (LY3002813) Prevention Study in Participants With Alzheimer’s Disease (TRAILBLAZER-ALZ 3)

The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of donanemab in participants with preclinical Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).

Your participation could last up to 186 weeks + and include up to 17 visits to the study center.

Conditions the trial is for early Symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease, At Risk For Alzheimer’s

The Bio-Hermes research study seeks volunteers with or without memory concerns to help identify blood or digital tests that could help predict the presence of amyloid plaques in the brain.
 

Who can participate?

This study is seeking 1,000 volunteers of all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds who are:

  • 60 to 85 years old
  • With or without memory loss
  • Have someone who can participate with you as a study partner

What does the study involve?

This study requires two (2) visits with the research study staff and one (1) visit to a local imaging site over approximately three (3) months. A follow-up phone call will occur depending on your brain amyloid PET scan results. No experimental treatments are part of this study.

Can Lifestyle Changes Reverse Alzheimer’s Disease?

Dr. Dean Ornish and his colleagues are conducting the first randomized controlled trial to determine if the progression of early stage Alzheimer’s disease may be slowed, stopped, or perhaps even reversed by a comprehensive lifestyle medicine program, without drugs, devices, or surgery.

This lifestyle medicine program includes a whole foods low-fat, low-sugar plant-based diet; moderate exercise; stress management techniques including meditation; and psychosocial support.

  • The live-streaming online class meets 2x a week over a 3 month period

To be eligible for this study, you: 

  • Must be part of a pair that includes a person with mild-to-moderate dementia or memory loss and a care partner that is willing to participate 
  • Have access to a laptop or desktop computer with internet access
  • Are able to attend the online class 2x a week over a 3 month period
  • Must not have severe visual or hearing impairment
  • You do NOT need extensive technology experience; if you can email, you can join!

Vanderbilt Memory & Aging Project

We are currently recruiting participants to expand the original VMAP cohort. VMAP study data is helping scientists understand the complexities of Alzheimer’s disease so that we can identify prevention strategies and treatments. By participating in research, you help create a healthier world for future generations.

We encourage anyone age 50 or older to join our participant registry. If you qualify for VMAP or another one of our research studies, we will contact you.
