Thanks, in part, to increased public awareness of the disease, there are an unprecedented number of clinical trials devoted to identifying effective treatment methods and putting an end to Alzheimer’s. That said, with hundreds of clinical trials taking place at any given time, finding the right local clinical trial for you or your loved one is often a challenge. Factors that determine whether a given trial is a “fit” include age, the stage of the disease, location, previous attempts and more. Available studies may include all stages of Alzheimer’s and precursor conditions such as Dementia.
Alzheimers-Study.org gives you—the Alzheimer’s patient or caregiver—the ability to find clinical trials in your area that you may qualify for. You’ll be asked a handful of questions—which take about 30 seconds to answer—to determine your eligibility.
In the event that no applicable studies are found in your area, you’ll have the option to keep your contact information on file with Alzheimers-Study.org so that you can be contacted when one or more studies become available.

There are currently more than 250 clinical studies available for Alzheimer’s patients in the United States. Studies are available for people in every stage of the disease.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, patients involved in clinical studies do somewhat better than people in a similar stage of their disease who are not enrolled, regardless of whether the experimental treatment works.
Some clinical trials reimburse associated travel costs, and some may provide compensation to participants.
