October 13, 2020 – Clinical trials for research are designed to help scientist look for new therapies for diseases and to look for cures. They need subjects to study for many reasons. Sometimes they need to see people who are in the beginning stages of any given disease, or healthy people to see why they age differently. In the Alzheimer’s and Lewy Body realm, they need to study the individual who has the diagnosis while they are alive so they may have references or bench marks for their symptoms. Families of those diagnosed may want to discover if there are genetic abnormalities which could put them at risk. You may join a trial to be part of the impending cure at some time in the future. What ever the reason, in this show I discuss what a clinical trial entails, safety questions, how to join and so much more!
