ENROLL IN THE MILD COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT ALZHEIMER'S RESEARCH STUDY
About the Study
If your loved one is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, there is hope. Medical and non-profit organizations are working tirelessly to find treatments and a cure. Part of the process of discovering effective treatments for Alzheimer’s are clinical trials. These research studies and clinical trials are separated into phases, and are offered to patients with Alzheimer’s after pre-clinical trials and early phase studies are completed.
An Alzheimer’s clinical trial at the Fort Wayne Neurological Center offers patients the opportunity to receive care from the nation’s leading neurologists, and includes treatment and continued monitoring at no cost to the patient, with expenses for time and travel potentially reimbursed as well.
The Center for Neurological research is currently enrolling patients for the Mild Cognitive Impairment Alzheimer’s study. If your loved one is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, please review the following research study qualifications and fill out the form below to see if you are eligible for this study.
