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~This study will determine the safety and efficacy of the experimental drug AZD0530 (saracatinib) in older adults with mild Alzheimer's disease. Researchers want to know if the drug can slow disease progression by inhibiting the protein Fyn kinase. Learn more...

A4~This study will test whether an investigational drug, solanezumab, can slow the progression of memory problems associated with amyloid, a protein that forms plaques in the brains of people with Alzheimer disease. Participants who have normal thinking and memory function but may be at risk for developing Alzheimer's dementia are invited to participate. All volunteers will undergo a positron emission tomography (PET) scan to be determine their brain amyloid levels. Learn more...

GeneMatch~The GeneMatch program, part of the Alzheimer's Prevention Registry, aims to identify people interested in participating in research studies or clinical trials based in part on their genetic background. GeneMatch will collect genetic information from participants which may be used to match them to studies. Participants are under no obligation to pursue these study opportunities. Learn more..

SNIFF~This Phase II/III clinical trial will examine whether a type of insulin, when administered as a nasal spray, improves memory in adults with a mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer’s disease. The study will also provide evidence about how intranasal insulin works in the body. Learn more...

Tau PET Imaging~This study will evaluate a new radioactive compound, [18F]T807, used in positron emission tomography (PET) scans to identify tau tangles, a protein in the brain that is associated with Alzheimer's disease. Learn more...

Bill Gross

After surviving a near-fatal accident, Richard Olson recalls the doctor telling him, "You may never walk again."

The Ellendale, North Dakota, farmer had gotten caught in the power takeoff shaft of his farming equipment, and his injuries left him unable to plant his 2,500 acres of soybeans and corn. The accident might have meant the end of his family's farm.

Enter Bill Gross and Farm Rescue. Since 2006, the successful UPS pilot has been, in his "spare" time, providing a helping hand and a hearty dose of hope for American family farmers like Olson.

Through his nonprofit, Gross and volunteers assist farmers who have suffered a major illness, injury or natural disaster. Today, any of those crises can put an end to a farmer's livelihood.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the number of farms in America has decreased by 67 percent since 1910. Raised on a family farm in North Dakota, Gross says farms have changed since his childhood.

"Years ago, when there was an accident or an injury, neighbors would usually come and help each other," recalls Gross. "Nowadays, there are fewer family farms and fewer children on those farms, and it's just not as easy for neighbors to help one another anymore."

Farm Rescue's goal is to keep farmers afloat by helping with the farm labor through the planting and harvesting seasons. "We don't give out money to farmers, this is not a handout or a bailout for any farm family," says Gross. "It's just to help them through the year so they can continue."

Olson says he doesn't know what he would have done without Farm Rescue's help. "I told my wife at the time we probably would have had to rent the land or something. No doubt we would have not been able to do it ourselves," said Olson. Olson had sent an application to Farm Rescue and heard from Gross in less than two weeks. Olson's request was granted, and today he is waiting to harvest the 2,500 acres of soybeans and corn.

Since 2006, Farm Rescue has helped 59 farmers like Olson keep their land. And Gross plans to help many more.
"One day I'm up flying a Boeing 747 and the next day I'm down here working in the land helping these family farmers in rural America," says Gross. "It's quite a difference but it brings me a lot of joy to see these families that need the help.

Farm Life ~ Poetry Soup

Sitting underneath this tree
Feeling the warm summer breeze
Sitting underneath this tree
Letting life pass me by

I work the fields all day long
Plowing rows and bailing hay
Bring the cattle in
To put them in the barn

There is nothing
That’s going to change my ways
Do this a million times
Always the same
Do what I grew up
Knowing how to do
Is my way of being true

Sweat pours down my chin
As I go stacking wood again
When the cattle start to roam
I just go out and bring them back home

When the sun sets at the day’s end
Time to rest my back again
Time to let life go
The easy way
