The Bruyère Research Institute is looking for participants to be part of an observational study in Alzheimer’s disease.
The Microbiome Study conducted by Dr. Andrew Frank at the Bruyère Research Institute is looking to see if there is a difference between the gut bacteria in individual with Alzheimer’s disease and those without Alzheimer’s disease. Our collaborator at the University of Ottawa have developed a laboratory test that can determine both the number and type of bacteria from a stool sample.
This is in hopes to see if there is a difference and test how certain treatments affect the gut bacteria to see if a change in gut bacteria could improve symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, and/or slow its progression.
The Microbiome study has been approved by The Bruyère Research Institute Ethics Board.
