Background

Dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease affects approximately  5 million Americans, and is more common among the older population. Currently there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease.

This study is investigating a new drug, ‘Xanamem’, for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Recent research studies have shown that high levels of a natural hormone called cortisol (often termed as the “stress hormone)” is associated with the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Xanamem has been specifically designed to reduce the level of the stress hormone.

This study seeks men and women aged 50+ who have mild dementia due to Alzheimer’s Disease. Participants are required to attend 6 study visits at the research site over a 4-5 months and will be compensated up to a total of $450 for travel and meal costs related to this study.
