THE MEMORY CLINIC:
Memory loss associated with aging has become the most critical and potentially costly health care issue on the medical horizon. Sometimes simple forgetfulness develops into a more serious cause for concern which threatens to rob people of their memories and quality regarding independent living. The Federal government has focused more resources and research in an effort to avert a crisis. Pacific Research Network is an independent research center that is working with both the private and government sectors.
Pacific Research is committed to continue the work in memory loss that began 15 years ago. Pacific Research was a part of the effort to bring the FDA approved medication for memory loss to market, in addition to the four subsequent medications. However, our job is far from complete. We are currently researching medications that may stop memory declines and prevent Alzheimer's disease. We welcome inquiry into our programs and approaches which are cost-free and grant supported for those (or their family or friends), who are either concerned or are struggling with developing problems.
A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE:
Over the past 30 years Pacific Research Network has made many contributions in the development of new medications to improve memory. Thousands of patients have been a part of our Memory Clinic's approximate 300 grant-supported programs in various types of memory-loss of the mildest to the most severe. Additionally, over 5,000 people have chosen to take advantage of The Clinic's unique 45-minute memory assessment. Many have chosen to participate in a study that might protect memory function. Some of those who took the memory assessment chose to take the results to their own physician for review or treatment. In addition, many have allowed us to store their results at the clinic for a future memory assessment comparison. These results comprise our "data-banking" that allows for a "critical assessment of changes over time," which allows for a detailedcomparison that may identify insidious changes that might go undetected.
