9 News Coverage

The dedication of Alzheimer’s researcher,  Royal Adelaide Hospital’s Dr Robert Prowse has been recognised today in a story run by 9 News in Adelaide.

The piece addressed the over 30,000 South Australians and their families living with Alzheimer’s and hoping one day for a cure, before it progresses to full blown dementia. The story featured Dr Prowse, from the Royal Adelaide Hospital, and connected his comments with the story of Lainie Hoburg, a 78-year old who “get(s) a lot of surprises” due to her forgetfulness.

The study mentioned in the news story is currently underway at three sites – in Christchurch, Adelaide and Melbourne – where they are trialling a medication that it is hoped may one day slow the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease, by getting in early.

We are still looking for people willing to take part in this study, with the goal of helping themselves and others. If you are between 50 and 85 years of age, live in one of our research cities and feel that your memory might be worsening, you might like to take part in a clinical research study evaluating the safety and effectiveness of a new investigational medication that may help slow the progression of early memory loss – the first step is to take our Memory Quiz here to see if you might qualify.
