Alzheimer’s Association Introduces TrialMatch

Every 70 seconds someone in America develops Alzheimer’s. In 2050, experts project there will be nearly one million new cases annually.

The Alzheimer’s Association has developed TrialMatch, a confidential interactive tool that provides comprehensive clinical trial information and an individualized trial-matching service for people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. New ways to detect, treat and prevent Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias come from these trials so it is important to get people registered in them.

Alzheimer’s Association TrialMatch is a free service. The web-based patient and clinical trial matching service is also accessible via a toll-free telephone number: 800-272-3900.

Participants create a TrialMatch profile. The Alzheimer’s Association compares your unique profile to its comprehensive, up-to-date clinical trial database. With patient’s permission, an Alzheimer’s Association Contact Center specialist contacts people with unbiased trial result options and trial site contact information.

According to the Association, clinical trials present an opportunity to play a more active role in their treatment – ultimately contributing to scientific discovery and benefiting future generations.
