The number of people with Alzheimer’s disease is rapidly growing. As many as 5.5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease. The number of people with Alzheimer’s disease is expected to reach 13.8 million by 2050.
Research has expanded our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. To make further progress, research participants are urgently needed.
Nearly 200 Alzheimer’s and related clinical trials in the U.S. need at least 270,000 people with Alzheimer’s or cognitive impairments, healthy volunteers, and caregivers.
Why participate in a clinical trial? You may want to:
- Help others, including future family members, who may be at risk for Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia
- Receive regular monitoring by medical professionals
- Learn about your health
- Test new treatments that might work better than those currently available
- Get information about support groups and resources
- Can’t find a trial that fits you? Sign up for a registry or a matching service.
Help advance research by volunteering for a clinical trial today. Together we make the difference!
