Alzheimer’s disease has become an increasingly serious illness especially in senior citizens. Though Alzheimer’s disease is not contagious, Alzheimer’s disease ranks at no. 3 as the main deadly disease in the world after cardiovascular diseases and cancers.
Alzheimer’s disease is a degeneration problem of thinking ability function (cognitive function) of an individual. This disease causes brain cells and nerves damage which affects neurochemicals that carry information in brain especially in memory storage. This disease is likely to be suffered by individual aging 65 years old and above.
Alzheimer’s disease is usually hard to be detected in the early stage since the early signs of this disease are hard to be recognized. Usually this disease is realized when it is at a quite chronic stage and recovery treatment quite hard to be carried out.
For that we need to help to find new treatments and preventions for this disease. One of the ways is by participating in clinical trials for Alzheimer’s disease. Finding cures for this disease needs clinical trials and clinical trials need participants. By that finding cure for Alzheimer’s disease will become a reality.
The video below brought by Alzheimer’s Association describe the importance of Alzheimer’s disease clinical trials and how you, persons with Alzheimer’s, caregivers, families and physicians can locate clinical trials based on personal criteria (diagnosis, stage of disease) and location to participate in the program.
