What is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease in which brain cells and their connections degenerate and die. Eventually, memory and other important mental functions are destroyed.
Lightship Alzheimer’s Clinical Trial
Are you or someone you know interested in clinical research for Alzheimer’s?
The TRAILBLAZER-ALZ-3 study is testing whether a study drug can potentially prevent or delay onset of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. Study participants will receive either the investigational medicine or a placebo.
This study includes an experimental blood test to detect if you are at risk for Alzheimer’s disease, and if eligible, a no cost memory screening.
Qualified participants may receive:
- Compensation up to $1,675
- Study-related care at no cost to you
- Access to health specialists
- Health insurance is not required
Why Participating In Clinical Trials Is Important
Tonya ArmsteadBrimingham, AL
“Helping people like myself is important.”

“Being a part of something bigger than myself is huge.”
- Male or Female
- Are aged 65-80 years old
- Have normal memory and thinking
- Have a family member or friend who could serve as a study partner.
- A study partner is a person who is familiar with your day-to-day life and would notice
any changes in your memory, thinking, mood and behavior. This could be your spouse,
partner, friend, relative, or caregiver. Your study partner would also consent to the trial.
- Pass study screening activities

Here’s the truth…
People of color make up approximately 40% of the US population, but there’s a lack of diversity when it comes to diverse communities participating in clinical trials.
Lack of clinical trial diversity is an issue because, without it, we do not know if new drugs and devices work similarly for different populations; there may be differences in efficacy and safety for a variety of reasons.
Let us put it this way: we’re underrepresented, which has only widened the number of healthcare disparities for us. That’s a problem, so let’s fix it.
Taking control of your healthcare is powerful, so we challenge you to raise your hand. When you participate in clinical or genetic research, you move toward changing the future of health for people of color. By participating, you demand that you, your friends, your family, and future generations are represented. It’s long overdue – but together, progress can happen NOW.
Being #NOWINCLUDED means standing up for your health. Let’s participate, then celebrate.
Together, we can diversify patient groups in clinical trials, so all are included and given the best opportunity for good health and long-term well-being. Data collected from this study will be used to develop safe and effective new therapies.JOIN THE COMMUNITY
