Alzheimer's Prevention Study

Currently Enrolling

Learn about the EARLY Trial

We are researching the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication in people who might be at increased risk for developing memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Currently there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, and there are no treatments proven to delay early memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Over 1,600 volunteers are being recruited nationwide to help us with this important research. We are looking for people who have generally normal memory function in daily life, and who are not being treated for memory problems.

Who is eligible to participate?

You may be able to take part in the EARLY Trial if you:

  • Are age 60 to 85 years.
  • Have generally normal memory function in daily life.
  • Have a close friend, relative, or spouse who can come to some trial visits with you.

Note that if you are age 60 to 64 years, you will need to have at least one of the following:

  • A parent or sibling with Alzheimer’s disease
  • Been told you are at increased risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease (that you have the apolipo protein E [APOE] ε4 gene ora proven elevation of beta-amyloid in your brain).

Even if you have noticed subtle memory changes, you may still be able to take part. The clinical trial doctor and the trial team will work with you to determine if this trial is right for you.

What does the study involve?

The EARLY Trial will last for about 5 years and will involve regular visits to our offices.
