Long Name:A Randomized Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Trial of the Effects of Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) in Slowing the Progression of Alzheimer's Disease (DHA)

The target population is males and females age ≥ 50 years who have a diagnosis of probable Alzheimer’s disease and have a reliable study partner. The goal is to determine whether chronic DHA supplementation slows the progression of cognitive and functional decline over 18 months in mild to moderate Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), as indicated by change in scores on the ADAS-Cog and CDR-SOB. The types of assessments and questionnaires that were obtained include: Medical History, Demographics, height, weight, Vital Signs, Concomitant Medications, cognitive test battery, MMSE, CDR–SB (Clinical Dementia Rating Sum of Boxes) and ADAS-COG(Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-cognitive subscale).
