AD-CARE: Alzheimer's Disease Care, Research and Education Program
Part of Strong Memorial Hospital
Lecanemab (Leqembi) was recently given accelerated FDA approval for the treatment of mild cognitive impairment due to Alzheimer’s disease and mild Alzheimer’s disease dementia. This medication is an infusion that will be administered twice monthly in an infusion center and requires regular monitoring for side effects through a series of head MRIs. If you are a patient at the URMC Memory Care Program, please contact your provider if you are interested in finding out if you or your family member qualify for treatment with lecanemab.

Advancement of clinical research is a fundamental mission of the AD-CARE program. We participate in a number of national and international studies that focus on different aspects of Alzheimer's Disease.
Specialists who have expertise in dementia treatment and research direct the day-to-day activities of our clinical studies.
We conduct studies concerning:
