Senior Citizens with Memory Concerns, Vietnam
Veterans Needed for Major Alzheimer’s Studies
Study of memory conducted at 54 sites in U.S. and
five in Canada
April 3, 2013 – Senior citizens – those ages 65 to
90 – are needed as volunteers for a study in the early detection of
Alzheimer’s disease. And, Vietnam War veterans are asked to help with a
study of connections between traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic
stress disorder, and signs of Alzheimer’s disease in Vietnam veterans as
Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging
Initiative, a landmark study in the early detection of
Alzheimer’s, is seeking volunteers for the two new studies.
For the first ADNI project, researchers are
recruiting seniors with a “significant memory concern” but no signs of
memory loss or other cognitive impairment. The volunteers will help
scientists define the biological markers and structural brain changes of
Alzheimer’s, which can appear years before symptoms become evident.
Volunteers must have no significant problems with
cognitive function or the ability to perform everyday activities. They
will undergo neurological testing and brain imaging.
This research is being conducted at 54 sites in the
United States and five in Canada.
Another new ADNI study will examine the possible
connections between traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress
disorder, and signs of Alzheimer’s disease in Vietnam War veterans as
they age. Researchers will examine the results of brain scans and
cognitive tests as well as changes in cerebrospinal fluid over time.
The study is the first step toward a larger, more
comprehensive study of dementia risk factors in veterans.
A Study of Brain Aging in Vietnam War
Veterans (DOD-ADNI) will take place at ADNI sites nationwide.
The University of California, San Francisco, has begun recruiting, and
other sites will begin this spring.

Financial Relief for Volkswagen Diesel Owners
You may be eligible for money damages if you owned or leased one of these VW, Porsche or Audi vehicles.
In the major scandal of 2015, Volkswagen cheated you and the world. They rigged diesel emission controls so you, nor regulators, would know how much pollution their cars were adding to our environment.
They were caught and have reserved $7.3 billion to help "make it right" with victims.
If you owned or leased one of these vehicles, contact us now.
