In a world where a lot depends on who you know, why not get to know some of the people who are doing the research for Alzheimer's treatment?

Being important. Valued and listened to. By health care professionals. (Can you imagine?)

Access to the most advanced treatments in medical science, relatively easily*

FREE MEDICAL CARE

A FREE VACATION, wait.. no? No.  Okay Let’s call it subsidized travel to a specific city.  Potential Coverage for Transportation to the Trial site, Accommodation while there and some money for meals

BEING FIRST ON THE LIST /NO TREATMENT GAP

Those who are in the trial will keep getting the drug or access to the device while the rest of the world waits for

A.       The end of the Trial

B.      Trial Results to be Published

C.      Enough Drugs or Devices to be built to meet the need

D.      Regulatory Approval in your Country

E.       The powers that be decides to provide coverage (pay for it)

F.       A doctor to prescribe it

G.      The powers that be decide that you qualify to have it covered.

  ( Initial approvals may be limited by stage or severity to keep costs in check)

 

Have you ever seen those Enrolling by Invitation Only Trials. If you are in the Trial that succeeds you will be invited to take part in the Second step.

 

GETTING INTO A TRIAL is way easier/faster than trying to convince your SELF, your FAMILY, then your DOCTOR, that there are options available for the treatment of Alzheimers.

 

Then harassing your doctor until they actually submit the paperwork for Special Access/ Expanded Access/ Compassionate Access, so you can have the same treatment as people in the trial if you don’t meet their criteria.

 Yes, this does exist but I’ve read that it’s a long, process and its NOT easy.

 If you are in another trial, and get to know people in the medical research world, maybe you will meet someone who can recommend you as a candidate for another trial.
