Drugs on Trial? Alzheimer’s Drugs …

Wednesday, July 8th at 6:30 PM 74 Lunt Rd, Falmouth, Maine 04105


You may not know this but Maine is a wickedimage of Medici Flyer hotbed of drug trials when it comes to dementia cures and Alzheimer’s treatments. What you also don’t know, because I haven’t told you yet, is that there are two drug trials happening right now in Maine. If you’re from Southern Maine (South of Bangor), if you have any inkling of a memory problem, if you’re a tad bit forgetful, I would encourage you to check out the big shindig being hosted at OceanView of Falmouth. Dr. James Donahue, New England Clinical Trials, will be giving a presentation on Alzheimer’s Disease and clinical trials. He is currently participating in the Lundbeck STAR Studies clinical trials which are for people with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s Disease. The study is testing an adjunct therapy that appears to target different receptors in the brain than current FDA approved medications.

Refreshments following presentation (be sure to get the tour that goes with it).
