You have been invited to view this page following discussions with our team about the SKYLINE Study being run at Re:Cognition Health – Birmingham Clinic. 

 

The SKYLINE Study is for cognitively healthy volunteers with no significant memory or other cognitive/thinking problems who want to understand more about their health and help forward Alzheimer’s Research.

This is an opportunity to have a state-of-the-art cognitive assessments and assuming your assessments are normal, you will proceed to have the opportunity to have sophisticated biomarker tests to look for early pathological changes consistent with Alzheimer’s Disease that may manifest in later life.

Over 95% of patients will be normal on these assessments however those with abnormal biomarker results will have the chance to access new generation medication aimed to slow the progression to Alzheimer’s Disease, or ideally, push out the chance of it presenting in later life.

This late phase (phase III) trial of the medication, Gantenerumab, patients have the option to take Gantenerumab only if they are found through screening to have abnormal build-up of amyloid plaque consistent with pre-clinical stage Alzheimer’s pathology.

  • Aged 60-80
  • Not experienced a stroke in the last year or significant head injury ever (as this may influence cognitive tests)
  • Must not be using anticoagulants [warfarin, rivaroxaban (Xarelto) dabigatran (Pradaxa) apixaban (Eliquis) edoxaban (Lixiana)]

As this trial has shown to be very popular in the past, please call 0800 802 1030 to register your interest or email us on clinician@re-cognitionhealth.com

Please ensure you have read this document                        at least 24 hours before your appointment at our below address so you can ask our doctor as many questions as you need on your appointment date. Our doctor will talk you through the document and make sure you understand everything, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us on 0800 802 1030

We will print these out for you on the day of your appointment so all you need to do is bring your study partner and a list of any medications you are currently taking. Please let us know if you have had any changes to your medications recently as this may mean you cannot join the trial.

These appointments, though completely free at every stage to you, cost thousands for the team involved therefore if you cannot make this appointment please us as soon as possible.
