Do you feel your memory isn't what it used to be? You are not alone.
Many people find their memory changes as they get older. You might forget people’s names or have words on the tip of your tongue that you can’t quite remember. You might feel a little absentminded, such as misplacing your keys or glasses or forgetting why you walked into a room. For most people, these changes are a normal and natural part of aging.
But in some cases, these changes are signs of something more serious — Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disease (meaning that it gets worse over time). It affects the way a person thinks, reasons, and solves problems. Over time, Alzheimer’s disease can also affect behavior, personality, and language.
While there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, doctors are researching investigational drugs to see if they may help people with Alzheimer’s disease in the future.

The MissionAD study program is a clinical research program testing an investigational drug for the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. (“Investigational” means the drug isn’t yet approved for use by the public.) Doctors are studying this investigational drug to make sure it is safe and to see if it may help people with Alzheimer’s disease in the future.
People who qualify for this research study may receive:
• Investigational drug
• Study-related care from a local study doctor
• Up to $1900.00 for your time and participation.
• Reimbursement for reasonable travel expenses
