Alzheimer’s Disease

Participate in an Alzheimer’s Research Study

If you or someone you love is experiencing memory loss, or has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, perhaps you should consider participating in a clinical research study. Participants receive a high standard of care, and research shows that people involved in clinical trials tend to do somewhat better than people in a similar stage of their disease who are not enrolled in clinical trials.*

Health insurance is not necessary to participate. Patients who qualify for our clinical trials will receive all study related care and treatment at no cost. In some cases you may be compensated for your time and travel. You may even gain access to research treatments before they are widely available.

Perhaps the best reason to participate in an Alzheimer’s clinical trial is so that you can take an active role in your health care, by educating yourself regarding your condition. You will obtain access to top quality medical care from our Board Certified physicians at a medical research healthcare facility specializing in Alzheimer’s care.

Without volunteers for clinical trials, improved treatments, including a cure for Alzheimer’s disease can never become a reality.

Premiere Research Institute is currently seeking volunteers for the LAURIET Study.

What is the LAURIET study?

The LAURIET Study from Genentech will test how safe the investigational medication is and whether it works in affecting Alzheimer’s Disease. The study will also use imaging (using a scanner to make a detailed picture) to look at how the investigational medication affects certain substances in the brain.

Some patients in the study will receive a placebo (which looks the same as the investigational medication but contains no actual medication). Other people will receive the investigational medication. This way the researchers can see if there is any difference in effect between people receiving the investigational medication and people receiving placebo. You will have a 50% chance (1 in 2) of receiving the investigational medication and a 50% chance of receiving placebo.

Who can take part?

You may be able to take part in the LAURIET Study if you are 50 to 85 years of age with moderate Alzheimer’s Disease (for example, confusion about dates and locations, difficulty recalling important events, and needing help with dressing). You need somebody who can be a reliable study partner or caregiver and who can come to some study visits with you and answer questions about your health.
