Our Clinical Trials


What is a Clinical Trial?

Clinical research is the scientifically accepted method for determining whether medications or devices are safe, tolerable, and effective to treat a specific condition. Clinical trials in humans occur only after evaluation of a treatment in the laboratory and in animal studies.

Through clinical trials, doctors find new and better ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, control, treat and cure illnesses. Clinical trials are dependent on the participation of volunteers, who join with scientists, to make advances in medicine possible.

We are committed to providing the highest quality of clinical research in Canada for the following conditions and more:

-Alzheimer's Disease

-Mild Cognitive Impairment

-Parkinson's Disease

-Lewy Body Dementia

-Alzheimer's Disease Prevention

-Migraine

Alzheimer's disease

With over 700,000 Canadians living with Alzheimer’s disease, finding successful new treatments is more crucial than ever. At Toronto Memory Program, we specialize in Alzheimer’s disease prevention, diagnosis and the use of currently approved treatments. However, we need patients, and the public, to partner with us by participating in clinical trials to move forward potential new treatments  If you are interested in learning more about our current enrolling clinical trials, visit our Current Studies page for more information.

Mild Cognitive Impairment

Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is a term used to describe a mild degree of cognitive decline along with a preservation of independent function.  Identifying the cause of MCI early is important to preserve cognition and optimize treatment. MCI is a risk factor for progression to dementia.   Learn more about our MCI & Early Alzheimer’s disease enrolling trials by clicking the Current Studies tab.

"I just wanted to thank you and everyone at the Toronto Memory Program for all your work and dedication. The care and service my mother received has been tremendous. She has a follow up in about nine months time, but I never got a chance to thank Dr. Sharon & Ian Cohen plus the entire team." - Gil Eany
"Our experience with the Toronto Memory Program has been entirely remote due to COVID but that did not stop the team from providing thorough, responsive, timely service. Everyone from the researchers to the support staff to Dr. Cohen himself has been incredibly informative and kind. We hope to be with the program for a while as we pursue clinical trials and we could not be more impressed by the team at TMP who will lead the way. Thank you for your important work! " - Annie White
