It is important for clinical trials to have people of different ages, sexes, races, cultures, and health conditions. This includes people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.
The new, easy-to-read booklet Clinical Trials and Older People can help you decide whether a clinical trial is right for you or the person you are caring for. You can get free copies for yourself, friends, family, patients, or clients. This booklet will help you learn:
- What a clinical trial is
- Reasons to participate
- How to find a trial
- Benefits and risks of participating in trials
Get more information on participating in clinical trials on the NIA website.
