About The Research...

There is currently no cure or licensed treatment for Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) or Parkinson’s disease.

The research team at MAC Clinical Research are conducting a study to test an existing medication in the hope of providing a new treatment for MCI or Parkinson’s disease.

Medication repositioning (or repurposing) identifies new disease areas for an existing treatment that is already on the market. Medication ‘repositioning’ has many advantages over traditional medicine discovery approaches. It can significantly reduce development time, and as compounds have demonstrated safety in people, it often avoids the need for large, expensive trials that can take many years to complete.

The study will look at the uptake of the test medicine by the body when given daily.

16 healthy volunteers aged 55 – 75 will be enrolled and closely monitored.

The study duration will be approximately 9 weeks. This will involve 4 x outpatients visits and 2 x 1-night residential stays (separated by 2 weeks).

Participants will receive £1380 payment for time and commitment upon completion of the trial and we will notify your GP of your participation and of any information relevant to your healthcare.

A full description of the study will be given before you decide to take part, both over the phone and during an appointment at a MAC clinic. This will include you receiving the full patient information sheet and an opportunity to ask the study doctor any questions.

By participating in this clinical trial, you may be helping to contribute to the development of a new treatment.

Reimbursement: £1,380 plus travel or transport.
