Dementia/Alzheimer: The Importance of Clinical Trials

October 15, 2010 at 12:15 am Leave a comment

There are many clinical trials available for people with dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease.  Almost every state has studies going on and most will pay for travel and medical expenses.  The problem is a lot of people are afraid to involve their loved ones in these studies.  While it might be true that a cure will not be perfected in time with those involved in the study, it does help gather information and hopefully treatments for the next generation.

The studies are usually done in major medical universities and hospitals and the outcomes could provide the medical field with important information to help fight the disease and possibly even prevent it.  The trials are advertised on television, in newspapers, and also by calling the large university hospitals in your area for information.  Remember that without research and volunteers, there will be no hope in curing this devastating disease.
