ADvance II Study     

AdvancePhase 3 Clinical Trial for Alzheimer’s treatment seeks volunteers. The ADvance II Study is researching the use of a surgically implanted device that delivers mild electrical pulses to specific areas of the brain in people with Alzheimer’s. This deep brain stimulation (known as DBS) will be given to the fornix, a place in the brain that plays a central role in memory. The study will involve about 210 people, sixty-five-plus years old diagnosed with mild Alzheimer’s disease. The study is FDA approved for enrollment at twenty-four sites in the U.S., plus additional sites in Canada and Germany. The neurosurgeons participating in this study have extensive experience with performing DBS surgery. All subjects in the study will have a DBS-f system implanted; for two out of three subjects the device will be turned on immediately, for the remaining one out of three, the device will be turned on at the twelve-month visit. Study-related tests will be provided at no cost and surgery costs are approved for Medicare.
