There is currently no cure for Alzheimer's disease, but scientists are constantly working to advance research through clinical studies with the help of human volunteers. Without these volunteers, there can be no better treatments, no prevention, and no cure for Alzheimer's disease.
Both people with the disease and healthy volunteers are needed for Alzheimer's-related clinical trials. Before joining a clinical trial, an individual must qualify for the study. All clinical trials have guidelines about who can participate. These criteria are based on factors such as age, gender, the type and stage of the disease, previous treatment history and other medical conditions.
The ADMDC conducts clinical trials that give participants access to the latest, most comprehensive diagnostic and treatment options available.

The NIH maintains an online database of clinical research studies taking place at its Clinical Center, which is located on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. Studies are conducted by most of the institutes and centers across the NIH. The Clinical Center hosts a wide range of studies from rare diseases to chronic health conditions, as well as studies for healthy volunteers. Visitors can search by diagnosis, sign, symptom or other key words.
ClinicalTrials.gov is a global registry and results database of publicly and privately supported clinical studies involving human participants.
ResearchMatch is a free and secure, national registry of people like yourself who want to get involved in a clinical trial but may not know where to start. Major American academic institutions created the registry so individuals could participate in studies that are making a real difference in everyone's future health.
