Research Opportunities at the Memory Clinic

​Do you have memory issues?

We are currently looking for people to participate in a clinical study of an investigational medication that may help to control the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. You may be eligible if you:

  • are 50 to 85 years of age;
  • are experiencing symptoms that may be related to early Alzheimer’s disease, such as problem with memory or thinking clearly; and
  • have someone who can be your study partner to ​accompany you to certain appointments and provide information about your health.

Participants in clinical studies can play a more active role in their own healthcare, gain access to potential new treatments before they are widely available, and help others by contributing to medical research.

The study will require 33 visits to the clinic over a period of approximately 102 weeks.

Travel expenses or transport will be provided.

For further information, please call 416 603 5910 or email bghazanf@uhnresearch.ca​.

Assessing the benefits of an outpatient aerobic activity program in patients with Alzheimer's disease

Investigator: Dr. Carmela Tartaglia

The aim of this study is to compare cognitive function, behavioural symptoms, caregiver burden and brain structure and function between patients who engage in an outpatient aerobic activity program for 6 months and those that do not. Understanding the effects of aerobic activity in patients with Alzheimer's disease may help provide better care to patients with Alzheimer's disease.

Participation would involve coming in for 3hours per week for 6 months.

​​

You will be reimbursed for transportation and parking expenses.

For further information, please contact Dr. Carmela Tartaglia at 416 603 5483.​
