Participating in a clinical trial or study helps medical researchers find new ways to treat and prevent Alzheimer's and other diseases, and could help future generations lead healthier lives. Here are some listings:

CONNECT~AZD0530 (saracatinib) was originally developed as a cancer therapy but may hold greater promise as an Alzheimer's treatment. In this Phase II clinical trial, participants will be randomly assigned to take either the oral study drug or a placebo for 1 year. The study requires at least four visits during screening and 13 or 14 visits during the treatment period. Learn more...

A4~The A4 study is a Phase III clinical trial for cognitively normal older adults whose brain scans show evidence of amyloid buildup, which places them at risk for memory loss and cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's disease. The study will test the safety and efficacy of solanezumab, a monoclonal antibody, to see if it slows memory and cognitive decline and affects the buildup of amyloid plaques, as shown by brain imaging and other biomarkers. Participants will take either the study drug or a placebo as a monthly intravenous infusion for 3 years. Learn more...

The Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network (DIAN). DIAN is an international research partnership of leading scientists determined to understand a rare form of Alzheimer’s disease that is caused by a gene mutation. Learn more..

Limelight On Your Town:

Salt Lake City, Utah

The fertile Salt Lake Valley lies between the Wasatch Mountains on the east and the Oquirrhs on the west. The active Wasatch Fault runs through the eastern part of the county. The Jordan River flows north through the valley to Great Salt Lake, and canyon streams provide culinary and agricultural water and in pioneer times powered mills.

Centuries before settlement prehistoric Indians and the historic Northern Shoshone and Ute Indians used the area for hunting, fishing, and gathering seasonal foods. The first white men to see the valley were trappers associated with William H. Ashley in 1524-25.

Permanent settlement began in 1847 with the arrival of the first Mormon wagon train, which included three women and three Blacks. The advance company planted the first crops on July 23, and the pioneers at Brigham Young's direction explored nearby areas, built a fort, and surveyed Salt Lake City. In October 1847 17-year old Mary Jane Dilworth opened the first school in her tent. In the next two years a dozen towns were founded in the county. With self-sufficiency a major goal, the settlers established basic industries to supply everything from pottery to printing paper and experimented with mixed success in growing all kinds of plants. In 1862 U.S. troops established Fort Douglas to protect communications and transportation routes.

Tens of thousands of Mormon immigrants funneled through Salt Lake City to outlying settlements, and, additionally, for thousands of California-bound travelers the city was the last major supply point. As the headquarters of the LDS church, and later the territorial and state capital, Salt Lake City and its county have always been the center of population, political power, and economic strength.

Bruce Duncan "Utah" Phillips 1935-2008

Bruce Duncan "Utah" Phillips was a labor organizer, folk singer, storyteller, poet and the "Golden Voice of the Great Southwest". He described the struggles of labor unions and the power of direct action, self-identifying as an anarchist. He often promoted the Industrial Workers of the World in his music, actions, and words.

Go Away
is that the moon i see over there i the west
or the headliight gleam C & O express?
i know she's gone, whatever i say
it own't be long till i make up my mind and go away
did you see that man he can't hear the whistle
blind old fool caught out on the trestle
can't go up and he can't go back
train kept coming brushed him ff the track
other storms may
Is that the sun coming up on the eastern shore,
Or just the coal bed glow behind the firebox door?
I know she's gone, whatever I say,
But it won't be long 'til I make up my mind
And go away.

Other storms may blow and the wind may rise,
Still I long to go where the fast mail flies.
I know she's gone, whatever I say,
But it won't be long 'til I make up my mind
And go away.

Bathing Without A Battle DVD

Persuading someone with dementia to take a shower who adamantly refuses to bathe, who insists that they just took a shower or they don’t need a shower, is no easy task, often resulting in upsets, agitation, aggression and even injury. Yet the Bathing Without a Battle video demonstrates strategies, approaches and techniques, missed opportunities, and simple steps that can effectively involve the patient, replacing discomfort with willingness and participation, and putting a smile on their face, rather than clenched fingers on their hands. This outstanding training video is a "must see" for all healthcare professionals involved in any aspect of bathing patients.

Utah Buttermilk Scones

1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 cup warm buttermilk
1 egg
3 tablespoons canola oil

4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; roll dough into a 16x8-in. rectangle. Cut into 24 rectangles. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rest for 1 hour.

In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry scones, a few at a time, until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
For honey butter, in a large bowl, combine butter, honey, confectioners' sugar and vanilla; beat until smooth. Spread on scones. Yield: 2 dozen.
