Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of age-related dementia, affecting as many as 5.3 million Americans and accounting for up to 80% of dementia cases.
A progressive brain disease, Alzheimer’s destroys brain cells, causing memory loss and creating problems with thinking and behavior that affect the patient’s ability to work, engage in previously enjoyable hobbies or interests, and interact with others to carry on a normal social life.
Current treatments, which combine medication for symptoms with supportive services, can help stabilize and even improve life for Alzheimer’s sufferers, but there is presently no cure for the disease, although the worldwide effort to find better treatments for Alzheimer’s is accelerating.
Artemis Institute for Clinical Research conducts clinical trials of investigative medications for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Qualified people participating in a trial may be eligible to receive financial compensation for time and travel, study-related medical and psychological evaluations, and the investigative study medication at no cost.
