Memory Center Clinical Research Trials
Hattiesburg Clinic Memory Center conducts clinical trials that focus on neurological therapeutics, with Alzheimer’s disease being an area of special interest and expertise. Basic research techniques generate ideas about which medical strategies may be likely to help alleviate symptoms of an illness or disease. Clinical research protocols are then developed in order to test these hypotheses.
Clinical trials are designed to determine if a new treatment will be both safe and effective for patients. In addition, trials will often collect data to determine whether an investigational strategy will have a broader influence on related problems such as activities of daily living, caregiver stress or general quality of life.
Clinical trials in Alzheimer’s disease will usually involve both patients and caregivers. While trial participation is completely voluntary, it is important to recognize the time and effort involved in the successful completion of a clinical trial.
Hattiesburg Clinic Memory Center is gratified to be able to offer our community access to potential new treatments for Alzheimer’s. New treatments can only be discovered through the partnership of patient volunteers, research sites, and scientific sponsors. Everyone plays an important role in this investigational process. Every day, we work with hopeful optimism towards more effective therapies, more accurate diagnoses, and eventually a sustainable cure for Alzheimer’s disease.
None of this happens without your help.
