Active Clinical Trials and Research Studies
We are seeking healthy adults, 55-90 years old for those with memory impairment or Alzheimer's disease and 65-90 years old for those without memory impairment, to participate in a research study. The goal of the study is to determine whether imaging of the brain (through MRI, PET and amyloid imaging scans) can help predict and monitor the onset and progression of Alzheimer's disease.
We are in need of volunteers to participate in a memory and high blood pressure study at Massachusetts General Hospital. We would greatly appreciate your help!
You may be eligible if you...
-Are age 60 or older
-Have high blood pressure or are taking blood pressure medication
-Have memory concerns
-Have someone close to you who can answer questions about your daily activities
This two year research study involves:
-Evaluation including memory tests each year
-Brain imaging at study entry and at 2 years
What is DIAN?
DIAN stands for the Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer’s Network. This international network has been established by the National Institute on Aging of the National Institutes of Health (US) to bring together researchers who study genetic forms of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
We are seeking healthy volunteers and individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) or Mild Alzheimer's Disease (AD) who are interested in taking part in a clinical research study to find out if functional MRI images of the brain can be used to diagnose and monitor the course and treatment of MCI and AD. Subjects must have a study partner and be willing to come to six to eight clinic visits over the course of two to three years.
We are seeking healthy adults, 60 to 90 years of age to participate in a research study. The purpose of the study is to develop ways for understanding memory changes that occur with age. Participants will be asked questions about their memory and must have a friend or relative who can answer ten minutes of questions over the telephone about day-to-day activities.
We are seeking healthy adults, aged 18 or older, to participate in a research study. The goal of the study is to examine olfactory function (or the sense of smell) in healthy individuals and in individuals with asymptomatic prodromal Alzheimer's disease, clinical Alzheimer's disease, Mild Cognitive Impairment, Dementia with Lewy Bodies, and Frontotemporal Dementia.
We are seeking healthy adults, aged 18 or older, to participate in a research study. The goal of the study is to examine olfactory function (or the sense of smell) in healthy individuals and in preclinical and clinical subjects with Alzheimer's Disease, Dementia with Lewy Bodies, or Frontotemporal Dementias.
WHAT IS THE REVEAL STUDY?
Many people with mild memory concerns wonder whether they will develop Alzheimer's disease (AD).
The REVEAL study is a multi-center, NIH-funded research project based at Brigham and Women's Hospital.
The goal of REVEAL is to use genetic information to help predict whether someone with mild memory problems will develop AD.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE?
You may participate if you:
* Are at least 55 years old
* Speak and read English
