Alzheimer’s Disease Anti-Inflammatory Prevention Trial

The Roskamp Institute Memory Center is actively following a large number of subjects who participated in the Alzheimer’s Disease Anti-Inflammatory Prevention Trial (ADAPT). Although earlier detection and the development of disease modifying treatment continues to be a primary focus of research and several potential compounds are under clinical trial, more prevention studies are needed.

The Roskamp Institute provides a full range of services for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease including diagnostic work-up and follow-up treatment, neuropsychological examination, clinical trial opportunities, and memory screening.  For more information, please call (941) 256-8018.

Volunteers for early detection of cognitive decline in older adults

Dr. Cheryl Luis of the Roskamp Institute was awarded a New Investigator Research Grant from the Alzheimer’s Association in 2009.  She is studying the potential usefulness of a blood test in combination with a paper and pencil memory test for early detection of cognitive decline in older adults.  Additional research volunteers are needed.  If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or Mild Cognitive Impairment and are interested in participating in a brief study, please call (941) 256-8018
