Title: NOURISH AD
Brief study summary: NOURISH AD is a clinical research study where doctors are testing an investigational new drug to see if it may improve memory and thinking processes in people with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease.
About the study: The NOURISH AD study is being conducted to help advance research in treatments for mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease and to test the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug called AC-1204.
Additional details about the study include:
• The study is being conducted at up to 90 sites across the US.
• The study length is approximately 7 months which includes a screening period of about 1 month and a 6 month treatment period.
• A placebo is being used for this trial. However, after the first 6 month treatment period of the study, all patients are eligible to continue treatment for another 6 months, where everyone receives the study drug, AC-1204.
• All study-related medications, medical care, laboratory testing, clinic visits, memory testing and other study procedures are free.
Purpose: Research studies have shown that the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease often have difficulty using glucose.
Glucose, a simple form of sugar, is the brain’s primary source of energy.
Your body also makes ketone bodies, another energy source that your brain can use in place of glucose.
The purpose of this study is to see whether increasing ketone body levels with an investigational new drug called AC-1204, will improve test scores that measure memory and other mental skills in people with Alzheimer’s disease.
