Thank you for your interest in the ADvance study of deep brain stimulation for Alzheimer's Disease. We have completed enrollment of 42 people in the study and are no longer recruiting patients. We will have initial study results in mid 2015.

We are grateful to the patients who are participating in this important study and their families. We are hopeful that stimulation of memory circuits in the brain will ultimately provide to be effective for this challenging and devastating disease.
