Supporting Clinical Research in Dementia & Related Disorders

Find out how VeraSci effectively and efficiently supported a 4-year, 3500 patient, multinational phase III trial in Alzheimer’s Disease.

Advancing Scientific Innovation in Dementia & Related Disorders

With vast expertise in dementia and related disorders, VeraSci supports clinical trials from Lewy Body (LBD), Frontotemporal (FTD), Parkinson’s Disease and Vascular Dementias to Alzheimer’s Disease. Complex neurodegenerative diseases, like Alzheimer’s disease, affect multiple brain systems over the lifespan and require a multifaceted treatment strategy. Fortunately, there are now a number of promising agents in various stages of clinical development. The formula for therapeutic success in each of these is identifying the right target, using the right compound for the right stage of disease, within the right patient population, administered at the right dose, and employing the right clinical endpoints that are reliable, robust, and fit for purpose.

Our highly experienced team brings decades of clinical research and treatment experience to support state-of-the-art clinical trials across a broad range of neurodegenerative disorders. We offer comprehensive start-to-finish services for clinical trials including trial design and regulatory strategy consultation, novel method development, implementation of rigorous assessment and quality assurance procedures, linguistics for multi-national trials, and interpretation of trial results.
