Primary Item (H2)

At Santos Research Center, we are excited to announce that we will be conducting Alzheimer's clinical trials 2023 in Tampa. We are looking for individuals living with dementia, caregivers, and healthy volunteers to join us in this fight against Alzheimer's disease.

By participating in our clinical research trials, you will be contributing to the advancement of science and the development of new treatments. With your help, we can accelerate progress and provide valuable insight to test potential treatments and methods of prevention.

As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to benefit from the study's findings and access new therapies before they are widely available.

Santos Research Center, Corp. invites you to make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer's disease by participating in our clinical studies.

Clinical Research Trials Details

We're all in this fight together!

Finding treatments that target memory loss at an early stage could help us envision an Alzheimer's disease-free future.

At Santos Research Center Corp., we are recruiting trial participants who are at risk of developing the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease as they get older.

Without clinical research trials, there will be no better treatments, prevention, or cure for Alzheimer's disease progression.

Details

Start Date: January 2021

Phase: Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional

Insurance: No insurance needed

Benefits: Compensation up to $1,500 for time and travel

Qualifications

To qualify for the trial, eligible people must:

  • Be aged 50 to 90 years of age
  • Have a clinical diagnosis of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease
  • Have a reliable caregiver
  • Be able to swallow oral medication

Excluding

  • Have a current diagnosis of significant psychiatric illness
  • Untreated clinical depression
  • Have a history of cancer
  • Clear evidence for other causes of neurodegeneration
  • Significant ongoing psychiatric or substance abuse problems

What is Alzheimer's Disease?

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive, neurodegenerative disorder that affects the brain and results in impaired memory, thinking, and behavior. It is the most common cause of dementia, a general term for a cognitive function decline severe enough to interfere with daily life.

Alzheimer's disease is characterized by the formation of plaques and tangles in the brain, which ultimately leads to the destruction of nerve cells and the loss of communication between them. This damage leads to a decline in cognitive abilities such as memory, language, problem-solving, and decision-making.

As the disease progresses, individuals with Alzheimer's may experience difficulty performing daily activities, behavioral changes, and, ultimately, death.

Symptoms and Care

Alzheimer disease is a progressive brain disorder that affects one's memory, thinking, and behavior. It is the most common cause of dementia among older adults.

Symptoms include:

The symptoms of early Alzheimer's disease can vary greatly, but some common signs include:

  1. Memory problems, particularly of recent events or conversations.
  2. Difficulty completing familiar tasks, such as cooking a meal or paying bills.
  3. Confusion about time and place, such as getting lost in familiar places.
  4. Difficulty with language, such as trouble finding the right word or forgetting names.
  5. Poor judgment, such as giving away large sums of money.
  6. Loss of interest in hobbies and activities.
  7. Changes in mood and behavior, such as becoming agitated or withdrawn.
  8. Difficulty recognizing familiar people or objects.
  9. Inability to care for oneself, such as bathing or dressing.

Care options for Alzheimer's disease include:

  1. Medications to temporarily slow the progression of symptoms.
  2. Behavioral therapies to manage symptoms such as agitation.
  3. Supportive therapies to help with daily living tasks.
  4. Caregiver support to help manage the demands of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's.
  5. Hospice and palliative care provide comfort and support during the later stages of the disease.

It is important to note that while these care options can help manage the symptoms of early-stage Alzheimer's disease, there is currently no cure for the condition. Clinical research studies are ongoing to find new and improved treatments for the disease. Join us at Santos Research Center, and make a difference in the fight against early Alzheimer's disease by participating in our Alzheimer's trials. Together, we can find a cure.

Risk Factors for Alzheimer's Disease

Understanding the risks of Alzheimer's is crucial for early detection and prevention. Various factors can increase an individual's risk of developing the disease, including genetics, lifestyle, and health conditions. Here are the different risk factors for Alzheimer's disease and how they can impact an individual's risk of developing it:

Genetics

  • Family history of Alzheimer's
  • Specific genetic mutations, such as APOE e4

Lifestyle

  • Low physical activity
  • Poor diet
  • Smoking
  • High-stress levels
  • Lack of social engagement

Health conditions

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Depression
  • Traumatic brain injuries

It is important to note that having one or multiple risk factors does not guarantee that an individual will develop Alzheimer's. However, understanding and managing these risk factors can help to reduce the risk of developing the disease. By participating in Alzheimer's clinical research trials, patients can also help to advance scientific research and find new ways to prevent and treat the disease.

Benefits of Participating in an Alzheimer's Disease Clinical Trial

For people affected by Alzheimer's and related neurodegenerative diseases, Santos Research Center offers several advantages:

  • Provides hope for people suffering from Alzheimer's, their family members, and future generations.
  • Allows people living with the disease to play a more active role in their healthcare.
  • Gives unlimited access to treatments before they become widely available to the public.
  • Offers expert medical care at leading healthcare facilities—often at no cost—while participating in important medical research.

All patients receive special care related to the study and opportunities to talk to the staff.

Studies show that people living with the disease involved in clinical research trials tend to do better than those in the same stage of their disease who are not enrolled in clinical research trials, regardless of whether the experimental treatment works.

Scientists believe this benefit may be caused by the general high quality of care provided during clinical research trials.

Alzheimer's Disease Trials at Santos Research Center

There are no new treatment advances to the clinical testing phase unless there's strong evidence indicating it will be as effective as or more effective than currently available therapies. Every clinical research trial contributes valuable knowledge, whether or not the treatment works as hoped.

Participating in clinical research trials gives us optimism for today and promise for tomorrow. It provides patients with access to cutting-edge treatments and expert medical care. Someday, clinical research trials may lead us to the end of Alzheimer's.
