Alzheimer’s disease is a global public health threat, affecting more than 30 million people worldwide and 5.7 million in the United States. While the number of people with the disease continues to climb, the few medications that are currently available only provide temporary symptom relief without slowing progression of the disease.
About the GAIN Trial:
The GAIN (GingipAIN Inhibitor for Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease) Trial is based on a growing body of scientific evidence that the bacteria P. gingivalis, most commonly associated with degenerative gum disease, can infect the brain and cause Alzheimer’s disease.
This clinical trial will evaluate whether the investigational oral drug COR388 is safe and can slow or halt the progression of Alzheimer’s disease by inactivating the toxic proteins, called gingipains, released by the bacteria and stop or slow further damage to healthy brain cells.
The GAIN Trial is looking to enroll more than 500 participants with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease at more than 90 clinical trial centers in the United States and Europe. The Memory Health Center has been selected to join this research study.
