Agitation Associated with Alzheimer’s Dementia Affects the Whole Family:
Do you know the signs to look for?
What is Agitation Associated with ALZHEIMER’S DEMENTIA?
Patients diagnosed with Alzheimer's dementia are known to have memory problems. Less well known is that some patients with Alzheimer's dementia may also have certain behavioral changes called agitation. These behaviors can be very disturbing for patients and their loved ones. Examples of some easily identified agitated behaviors are: restlessness, pacing and aimless wandering, screaming, tearing things or destroying property, shouting, hitting others or self, throwing things, pushing people, resistiveness, hurting self or others, constant unwarranted requests for attention or help, and kicking. Do any of these behavioral changes describe you or your loved one? Patients showing signs of agitated behavior may be eligible to enroll in the TRIAD Research Study.
What is the TRIAD Research Study?
The TRIAD Research Study is evaluating an investigational drug (also called the study drug) to determine if it might reduce the symptoms of agitation associated with Alzheimer’s dementia, as well as testing its safety and tolerability in participants.
TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS STUDY, PATIENTS MUST:
- Be 50 to 90 years old
- Have moderate to severe agitation associated with Alzheimer’s dementia
- Have a carer who can attend all study visits
Additional criteria for eligibility will apply. Study participants receive study-related medical exams and study drug at no cost. Reimbursement for time and travel may be available.
