RECALL – Pilot

The George Institute for Global Health is coordinating a decentralised study aimed to reduce the risk of dementia and cognitive decline by lowering blood pressure.

Study Purpose/Description

The RECALL-Pilot study will test the feasibility of a remote trial in older adults to lower blood pressure to investigate whether this reduces the incidence of cognitive decline and dementia.

Participants will be helping researchers to learn more about preventing Dementia and Mild Cognitive Impairment and your contributions will provide valuable information to benefit others in the future.

What’s Involved?

There are no face-to-face appointments in this study – the whole study is done online from home, other than two blood tests. These blood test must be provided at the beginning and at the end of the study. Participants will need to share their GP’s information and designate a ‘study buddy’ (partner, relative, child, sibling, or friend) for contact if needed.

  • The study involves: taking a low-dose blood-pressure lowering pill for 60 days, which will be posted to you.
  • taking an online cognitive test via an online testing service called Creyos and
  • completing short health and quality of life questionnaires periodically over an 8-week period.
