AWP to take part in new clinical trials on dementia

The Kingshill Research Centre in Swindon has been invited to take part in six new studies looking into various aspects of Alzheimer's disease.

The news comes just before the start of the national Dementia Awareness Week - which runs from 1 to 8 of March and which is organised by Dementia UK.

The trials - which will form part of a much wider study to which research centres across the country, and world, will contribute to - will take place later this year and will explore a range of treatment options and cover all stages of the disease, from early to advanced.

Kingshill Research Centre, under the leadership of Dr Roger Bullock, has been carrying out clinical trials on dementia for over 20 years and has participated in numerous studies some of which have contributed towards the current licensed drugs for Alzheimer's.  The new trials will run in addition to the five the research centre is currently involved in.

"We are regularly invited to take part in clinical trials on dementia and we are now one of the main sites in the UK for research into this disease, " says Roger.

Volunteers will be needed for these studies - if you would like to more information, or if you think you know someone who might be interested in participating, please contact kingshill.research@awp.nhs.uk or telephone 01793 327954.
