The ACCORD Study - For people with Alzheimer’s disease who are experiencing agitation symptoms
Who can participate? Seniors who are aged 65 to 90 who have Alzheimer's disease and show signs of agitated, irritable, or aggressive behavior, may qualify. Other criteria also apply.
What is the ACCORD Study? Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's is demanding. And when agitation is a factor, it’s all the more difficult. It has been reported that 70% of people with Alzheimer’s display agitation and aggression.1 Not treating these symptoms may make things worse. In fact, untreated agitation is associated with faster cognitive decline, earlier nursing home placement, and increased mortality.2
Right now, research is underway to determine the safety and effectiveness of an oral investigational medication for people with Alzheimer’s disease who are experiencing agitation symptoms. And your loved one may be able to take part.
While it is unlikely that any one intervention will be found to delay, prevent, or cure the disease, treating behavioral symptoms often makes people with Alzheimer’s more comfortable and can make caregiving easier.
Where is the study taking place? The study is being conducted by select doctors throughout the U.S.
Is there any cost? Participants in the ACCORD Study will receive study-related care and study medication at no cost. Compensation for time and travel may also be provided.
