Alzheimer's Disease 4A Study Seeking Seniors Age 65 to 85 with Normal Thinking and Memory Abilities

Alzheimer's disease continues to impact us, with the most recent discussions around Super Bowl this week where the Denver Bronco's team owner will not be attending the game due to his battle with Alzheimer's disease. We still do not know how to cure Alzheimer's disease and the only way to get closer to both a prevention and cure for this disease is to study the brains and behaviors of those who both do and do not have the disease. The financial impact of caring for seniors with Alzheimer's disease already is in the billions of dollars, as both our public tax dollars, through Medicare and Medicaid, and private funds go towards caring for these seniors.

You can assist in finding a cure for this disease by spreading the word about the A4 study, funded by the National Institute on Aging, Eli Lilly and Company and several philanthropic organizations. The University of Southern California Alzheimer's Therapeutic Research Institute is coordinating the A4 study and seeking participants who are NOT DIAGNOSED with Alzheimer's disease yet.

Senior caregivers and seniors can learn more about this study and join or refer a friend to join the study.  Visit the website to learn more and find a location near you and just send an email to the contact to begin the application process. The eligibility requirements for this clinical trial for Alzheimer's disease are below.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Age 65 to 85 years old
  • Healthy (Normal) Thinking Ability and Memory
  • Study Partner with Minimum Weekly Contact with You to Answer Questions Annually
  • Willing to Receive IV Infusions of Treatment or Placebo for 36 Months (36 Monthly Infusions)
  • Agree to Have Health Monitored During Study
  • Health monitoring includes memory and thinking tests, ECG's, PET scans, MRI scans, blood and urine tests

Non-Eligible Seniors:

  • Already Receiving Treatment for Alzheimer's disease 
  • Current Diagnosis with Serious or Unstable Illness
  • Reside in a Skilled Nursing Facility of Nursing Home
Caregivers assisting seniors with memory loss can take an online caregiver training course to learn more about positive ways to manage caregiving for memory loss diseases and learn about the various types of memory loss diseases.
