  • A Study of LY3154207 in Participants With Parkinson's Disease Dementia

    open to eligible people ages 40-85

    A randomized placebo-controlled trial in individuals with Parkinson's disease dementia to evaluate the safety and efficacy of three doses of study drug LY3154207 in participants with mild-to-moderate Parkinson's disease dementia treated for 12 weeks.

  • Characterization of Inclusion Body Myopathy Associated With Paget's Disease of Bone and Frontotemporal Dementia (IBMPFD)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The investigators are researching families with inherited inclusion body myopathy (IBM) and/or Paget disease of bone (PDB) and/or dementia (FTD) which is also called IBMPFD. IBMPFD is caused by mutations in the VCP gene. Our main goal is to understand how changes in the VCP gene cause the muscle, bone and cognitive problems associated with the disease. The investigators are collecting biological specimen such as blood and urine samples, family and medical histories, questionnaire data of patients with a personal or family history of VCP associated disease. Participants do not need to have all symptoms listed above in order to qualify. A select group of participants may be invited to travel to University of California, Irvine for a two day program of local procedures such as an MRI and bone scan. Samples are coded to maintain confidentiality. Travel is not necessary except for families invited for additional testing.

  • Therapy in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (TAME)

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The purpose of this study is to determine if memantine at 20 mg BID when used in conjunction with riluzole, can slow down the disease progression of patients with ALS including potentially improving their neuropsychiatric changes, as well as determine if serum biomarkers can be used both as a diagnostic and a prognostic marker in patients with ALS.

  • Allogeneic Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Alzheimer's Disease

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    STUDY OBJECTIVES Primary: To assess the safety and tolerability of ischemia-tolerant allogeneic human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) manufactured by Stemedica versus placebo administered intravenously to subjects with mild to moderate dementia due to Alzheimer's disease. Secondary: To assess the preliminary efficacy of hMSCs versus placebo in subjects with Alzheimer's-related dementia, as evidenced by neurologic, functional, and psychiatric endpoints.
