Medical Food Research Study for Memory Lapses


Have you or a loved one been experiencing noticeable memory lapses?  If so, this could be a condition known as Mild Cognitive Impairment.  About 50% of the population aged 65 years or older suffers from early memory impairment. Early memory impairment disrupts the day-to-day lives of many adults and may include symptoms such as: forgetting the “right word” and names/faces of individuals or difficulties in problem solving and handling complex situations.

Great Lakes Clinical Trials is conducting a study to evaluate a prescription medical food for patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment. To qualify, you must:

·      be between the ages of 65 and 85

·      be experiencing noticeable memory lapses, known as mild cognitive impairment

·      not be taking medication or over-the-counter supplements for memory loss

·      be otherwise, generally healthy 

The study lasts approximately 2 years and you will be asked to visit the clinic on 7 occasions.  The visits last between 1-3 hours in length.  If you qualify, you will receive study medications, exams and study related care at no cost.  In addition, qualified participants may receive reimbursement of up to $1,175.00 for time and travel.
