Memory problems and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

About This clinical research study

The research team at MAC Clinical Research are conducting a study to test an existing medication to see if the treatment may help with cognition in people living with memory problems and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) (for example, whether the medicine may improve remembering, thinking, attention and problem-solving).

What is MCI? Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is a condition that causes minor problems with cognition – mental abilities such as memory or thinking. MCI causes cognitive changes that are serious enough to be noticed to the person affected and to family members and friends, but do not affect the individual’s ability to carry out everyday activities. Approximately 15% to 20% of people age 65 or older have MCI.

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.

Clinical research studies are performed as a way of bringing about progress in medicine and research. Clinical research studies make it possible to scientifically assess the properties of a drug, to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of a treatment or a medical device, or to learn more about a disease and methods to diagnose and monitor it.

If the study is successful, it may be an important step towards developing a promising new treatment.
