This is a Phase 2 study assessing the safety, tolerability and efficacy of intranasal delivery of APH-1105 for the treatment of mild to moderate Alzheimer's in adult.

Intranasal Lidocaine in Acute Management of Pediatric Migraine and Migraine-like Headache

Headaches in children are very common and are a source of significant distress for the patient and their family. Migraines are the most common headache disorder in children and are associated with episodic pain and other symptoms such as nausea and sensitivity to light and sound that can impair a child's ability to participate in daily activities and lead to missed school o...

Effects of Psilocybin in Post-Traumatic Headache

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of oral psilocybin in post-traumatic headache. Subjects will be randomized to receive placebo, low dose psilocybin, or high dose psilocybin on two separate test days approximately 14 days apart. Subjects will maintain a headache diary prior to, during, and after the treatments in order to document headache frequency an...

Dapagliflozin In Alzheimer's Disease

This is a pilot randomized controlled trial in individuals with probable Alzheimer's disease testing the effects of 10 mg dapagliflozin, taken daily for 12 weeks, on cerebral n-acetyl aspartate (NAA) levels using magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). The investigators will also examine the safety and tolerability of dapagliflozin and explore the effects on systemic NAA lev...

Vestibular Therapy in Alzheimer's Disease

Nearly 2 out of 3 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) experience problems with balance and mobility, which places such patients at increased risk of falling. The vestibular (inner ear balance) system plays an important role in balance stability, and vestibular therapy (VT) is well-known to improve balance function in healthy older adults. In this study, the investigators...
