What is research in Alzheimer’s disease?
Research is the systematic and careful investigation to better understand a disease. The research includes study in the laboratory as well as in the clinic and is key to finding prevention or cure for Alzheimer’s disease.
Why participate in research for Alzheimer’s disease?
Today, an estimated five million Americans and their families face the everyday challenge of Alzheimer’s disease. By 2050, this number is expected to climb as high as 16 million. Only through research can a cure be found and this outcome prevented. Physicians and scientists are working to better understand this disease but need the help of patients and their families. Without the participation of research subjects, this fight cannot be won. The research that is being done benefits those who participate, others like them, and future generations.
