At Santos Research Center, we understand the importance of clinical research studies in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Our dedicated team of scientists is committed to finding new and improved treatments to combat this debilitating disease. However, without the participation of human volunteers, these treatments can never become a reality.

We are currently enrolling for Alzheimer's clinical trials, and we need individuals living with Alzheimer's, caregivers, and healthy volunteers with a family history of Alzheimer's, or those with a genetic risk, to join us in this fight. Recruiting and retaining trial participants is a crucial part of our research. We need your help to accelerate progress and provide valuable insight into potential treatments and methods of prevention that can improve brain health, brain function, and brain metabolism and slow down the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's disease.

Join us at Santos Research Center, and make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer's and cognitive decline by participating in our Alzheimer's disease clinical trials. Together, we can find a cure and improve the sleep and memory problems of those suffering from this disease.

Benefits of Taking Part in an Alzheimer's Clinical Trial

Volunteering in Alzheimer's Disease clinical trials can offer individuals living with mild Alzheimer's disease, their caregivers, and healthy volunteers a unique opportunity to contribute to the scientific research of this debilitating disease and its progression.

By taking part in these trials, individuals have access to investigational drugs, new and experimental drugs, and personalized care that can potentially slow down the progression of the disease.

Clinical trials can positively impact the lives of those who participate and help accelerate progress in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Join us in our mission to find new and improved treatments for Alzheimer's disease by participating in our clinical trials.

Compensation for time and travel

Participants in Alzheimer's clinical trials may receive compensation for time and travel expenses, which can help offset the costs of participating in the trial. This can include monetary compensation, reimbursement for transportation costs, or even meals and accommodation. This can be a significant help for those living with dementia, their caregivers, or volunteers without dementia who may be struggling with the financial burden of the disease. This compensation can help them focus on the trial and its potential benefits to them and the scientific community.

Free medical evaluations

Clinical trials for early Alzheimer's disease offer access to investigational drugs and free medical evaluations, aiding in the detection of early stages of the disease and slowing disease progression.

Access to study-related medications and care at no cost

Participants in clinical studies have access to study-related medicine and care at no cost. This can be beneficial for individuals who may not have access to medical care or who may be struggling to afford it.

Benefit from the study's findings

Participating in a clinical study can allow individuals to benefit from the study's findings. This can include access to new treatments and methods of prevention for Alzheimer's disease.

Access to new therapies before they are widely available

Participants in clinical trials have the opportunity to access new drugs before they are widely available to the general public. This can give them an early start on treatment and potentially improve their outcomes.

Alzheimer's clinical trials offer many advantages for individuals living with dementia, their caregivers, and healthy volunteers. From compensation for time and travel to free medical evaluations and access to new therapies, participating in a clinical trial can provide valuable support and opportunities for those affected by Alzheimer's. Consider participating in a trial to gain these advantages and help advance research to treat Alzheimer's disease.

Drawbacks of Taking Part in an Alzheimer's Clinical Trial

While participating in Alzheimer's research studies can offer many advantages, it is important to also consider the potential drawbacks. Clinical trials can be a significant commitment of time and energy and may not be suitable for everyone. In this section, we will explore the various drawbacks of taking part in an Alzheimer's clinical trial.

Risk of receiving a placebo instead of the investigational treatment

Participants in clinical studies may be assigned to a placebo group and not receive the investigational treatment being studied. This can mean that they do not receive the potential advantages of the treatment being studied and, instead, participants receive an inactive substance that is similar to the investigational treatment. This allocation is used to compare the results of the investigational treatment to those who received the placebo.

Potential for inconvenience or discomfort during study-related procedures

Participating in a clinical trial can involve regular visits to the study site, additional procedures or tests that may be uncomfortable, and may require a change in the participant's current routine. This can be inconvenient or uncomfortable for some participants, especially those already dealing with the challenges of living with dementia.

The possibility of not being able to continue with the trial

Participating in a clinical trial can be a significant commitment of time and energy. Sometimes, unforeseen events may arise that prevent participants from being able to continue with the trial. This can be due to health reasons, changes in the participant's living situation, or other personal reasons.

Time and travel required for regular visits to the study site

Participating in a clinical trial often requires regular visits to the study site. This can be time-consuming and may require travel, which can be a burden for some participants, especially those who have mobility issues or live far from the study site.

Investigational treatment may not be more effective than current options

Participating in a clinical trial does not guarantee that the investigational treatment being studied will be more effective than current treatment options. This can be disappointing for participants who had hoped for better results and may lead to a waste of time and resources for them.

Alzheimer's Disease Trials at Santos Research Center

Clinical testing of new treatments does not proceed unless there is substantial evidence suggesting that they are equally or more effective than existing therapies. Every clinical trial contributes significant knowledge, regardless of whether the treatment achieves the desired results.

Participating in clinical trials instills hope for the present and prospects for the future. It allows participants to receive advanced treatment and expert medical attention. One day, clinical trials may pave the way for the eradication of Alzheimer's.
