What are they?
Clinical studies or clinical research are evaluating new strategies to identify, prevent, treat or manage disease with the aim of improving the health of people. A clinical study is research in which you freely agree to participate. Nevertheless, without the voluntary participation of people, studies cannot exist.
We are studying the impact of aging on brain structure and on the metabolism of major fuels by the brain. Our work involves using ketogenic strategies to reduce the risk and progression of cognitive decline associated with aging and Alzheimer’s disease because Alzheimer’s disease does not impair the brain’s ability to use ketones like it does with glucose.
