We offer a variety of Clinical Research Drug new and ongoing studies:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer's is a progressive neurodegenerative disease characterized by symptoms such as memory loss, cognitive decline, and problems with language and reasoning. It is the most common cause of dementia in older adults. The disease is caused by the accumulation of abnormal protein deposits in the brain, including beta-amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles.
- Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is a chronic, degenerative disease of the central nervous system that affects the brain and spinal cord. The disease is characterized by the formation of scar tissue (sclerosis) in the brain and spinal cord, which interferes with the normal functioning of the nervous system.
A migraine is a type of headache characterized by moderate to severe pain that is usually felt on one side of the head. Migraines can also be accompanied by a number of other symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, sound, and smell. Some people experience an "aura" before a migraine headache, which can include visual disturbances such as flashing lights or blind spots.
Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy, or CIDP, is a chronic, progressive neurological disorder that affects the peripheral nerves, which are the nerves that travel outside of the brain and spinal cord. CIDP is considered an autoimmune disorder, which means that the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells in the body. The main symptom of CIDP is weakness and muscle wasting (atrophy) in the arms and legs. Some patients also experience numbness, tingling, and pain in the affected areas. Symptoms can also include loss of reflexes, muscle stiffness, coordination problems and sensory disturbances.
