Evoke+ Alzheimer's Clinical Trial

Updated: Jul 30, 2021

Study investigates if semaglutide can prevent the progression of cognition and function

Evoke+ is a clinical study involving approximately 1840 people from 40 countries and is for patients with early Alzheimer's disease. Usage of semaglutide in oral formulation is already approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in several countries. Currently there are no treatments available for the treatment of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and only symptomatic treatments are available for dementia due to Alzheimer's disease, which therefore signifies the importance of finding a treatment that can target and even prevent the early stages of dementia. The Evoke+ study will examine the effects of semaglutide on the change in cognition and function in people with early Alzheimer's disease.

Key Benefits of Participation:

  • Taking a more active role in your healthcare

  • Getting regular expert medical care

  • Having additional talks with the study staff to discuss healthy lifestyle choices

  • Helping others by contributing to medical research

Will I know if I have placebo or the real medicine?

Evoke+ is a "placebo-controlled" study, which means half of the people in the study will be given a "dummy" medicine called a placebo.
