Clinical Trial

Long-Term Nicotine Treatment of Mild Cognitive Impairment

This study is designed to help researchers learn if nicotine can improve symptoms of memory loss in people experiencing mild memory problems referred to in this study as mild cognitive impairment or MCI. Recent studies have suggested that one of the causes of memory disorders may be a reduction in a particular chemical in the brain. This chemical, acetylcholine, is thought to act on certain brain cells in a specific way that helps us to remember and use memories as well as affect our mood. By administering nicotine over a longer period of time to participants with MCI, The sponsor hopes to better understand whether nicotine may act to improve memory loss symptoms over the longer term and whether it may help to delay the progression of memory loss symptoms.
