Clinical Trials
Clinical trials are how new treatments are tested.

Per UCSF Research Guidelines, Phase 2 & 3 clinical trials may be considered medically essential. We, therefore, plan to continue some clinical trial visits and procedures when appropriate. Please contact the research coordinator for the clinical trial of interest for the latest information regarding enrollment and ongoing visits.

Clinical trials are how new treatments are tested. UCSF’s Memory and Aging Center (MAC) runs selected clinical trials for neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, progressive supranuclear palsy and Huntington’s disease. Your participation helps us evaluate these potential therapeutics. If one of our trials looks interesting to you, please talk with your doctor or contact the study team to see if it is appropriate for you. If you would like more information, you may find the booklet, Clinical Trials and Older Adults, published by the National Institute on Aging helpful for describing how older adults can volunteer for research studies.

You can also search for other clinical trials at UCSF or check the NIH site, ClinicalTrials.gov.
