A new Alzheimer’s Research Study – ASPECT™

 

Do you have a loved one with agitation associated with Alzheimer’s dementia?

Is their agitation becoming overwhelming?

We’re continuing with our mission to help find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and have now launched a new Alzheimer’s disease research study – ASPECT™

 

 

What is the ASPECT Study?

The purpose of the ASPECT ™ clinical research study is to investigate the safety and effectiveness of a potential treatment, AVP-78G, for agitation associated with Alzheimer’s disease, when compared to a placebo.

What do we mean when we say agitation?

Some examples of agitated behaviours are as follows:

  • Restlessness
  • Pacing / aimless wandering
  • Screaming
  • Kicking
  • Shouting
  • Hitting others or self
  • Throwing objects
  • Pushing people
  • Hurting self or others
  • Constant unwarranted requests for attention or help
  • Tearing things or destroying property

 

Who can participate? 

To participate in this ground-breaking research study, they must fit the following criteria:

  • Are between the ages of 50 and 90 (inclusive)
  • Have a diagnosis of probable Alzheimer’s dementia
  • Have moderate-to-severe agitation that interferes with their daily life
  • Have a reliable caregiver who spends a minimum of 2 hours per day, 4 days per week with them and is willing and able to comply with all study procedures

Please note, this is not a complete list of study requirements, the study doctor will review all requirements with potential participants and their carers.

If you think a loved one may be interested and fits the criteriaplease take the 3 min pre-screening questionnaire here

 

Why participate?
