A clinical research study is enrolling now
For people that are living with dementia from Alzheimer’s or are taking medications for Alzheimer’s disease.
The ACCORD study is underway to learn more about a medication for people living with dementia from Alzheimer's or who are taking medications for Alzheimer’s disease. If someone you provide care for has Alzheimer’s and is not acting like themselves because of restlessness, aggression or irritability, this study may be an option.
Agitation presents itself in many forms and can include: pacing, rocking, restlessness, pointing fingers, gesturing, repeating some behaviors (excessive motor activity), yelling, screaming, shouting (verbally aggressive), grabbing, shoving, hitting, kicking, biting, destroying property (physically aggressive).
Dealing with agitation behaviors can be very difficult and caring for someone with dementia from Alzheimer's is demanding. When loved ones have agitated behaviors, it's all the more challenging. It has been reported that 70% of people with Alzheimer's have symptoms of agitation and aggression.1
Not treating these symptoms may make things worse. In fact, untreated agitation goes along with faster memory loss (cognitive decline), earlier nursing home placement, and increased mortality.2
Someone you know or provide care for may be eligible to participate if they*:
