One such research program is the A4 Study. This study, led by Harvard researcher Dr. Reisa Sperling and coordinated by the Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study at the University of California, San Diego, is a clinical trial focused on determining the effectiveness of prevention therapy before Alzheimer's disease impacts the brain.
Enrollment for the study is underway and researchers are currently looking for volunteers aged 65+ with normal memory function to be screened for an Alzheimer’s amyloid plaques. Those found eligible for the study will receive prevention treatment at locations across North America and Australia.
While all research is uncertain, the potential to turn the tide and provide hope for all families that face Alzheimer’s has never been more promising. If you know someone who might be qualified and interested in participating in the study, have them examine the eligibility requirements and learn more here.
