Novartis Research Study—Posted 6 March 2007
Participants sought for a Novartis research study designed to evaluate the safety and tolerability of switching from donepezil to an initial dose of 5cm2 rivastigmine patch formulation in patients with probable Alzheimer disease (MMSE 10-24). View this and additional information on this study at www.clinicaltrials.gov, ID# NCT00428389.
Senile Plaque Imaging Study in Patients with Alzheimer's Disease Using Positron Emission Tomography—Posted 5 January 2007
This study takes place one time at the PET Centre located at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Clarke site (Toronto, Canada). After injecting the tracer (a chemical substance) via a vein in your arm, you will lie down in the PET scanner for a maximum of 2 hours, as the PET scan images the tracer as it enters your brain. During this time, about 10 blood samples of 10 mL each will be drawn from you via an IV. Thus, for those samples a needle will be placed only once. Your caregiver may be present throughout the study. You may take part in up to three PET studies using three different beta-amyloid tracers. See more details.

Alzheimer's Disease Sibling Study, University of Michigan—Posted 6 December 2006
You may participate if your brother or sister was under the age of 65 when their symptoms of Alzheimer's disease began, and if you are not experiencing any symptoms of Alzheimer's disease yourself. Recruitment will continue until February 2007.
We will mail you a confidential questionnaire that will take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete. This will help us learn about your attitudes regarding Alzheimer's disease and the impact that your sibling's illness has had on your life. It is possible for questionnaires to be sent to you by email if that is more convenient. Each participant will receive a packet of Alzheimer's disease information and resources. You will also have the opportunity to participate in an optional telephone interview. Individuals who complete both the questionnaire and the interview will receive an additional $10 gift card. This study has been approved by the University of Michigan Institutional Review Board.
This study is designed to help the medical community provide educational and supportive resources and services to families touched by Alzheimer's disease and may lead to improved healthcare, mental healthcare, and communication for the members of a family. Please contact Karen Knutson at 734-546-2200, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
