About the LIGHTWAVE Study

The clinical research study lasts up to 20 weeks, with up to 7 visits to the study site and 2 phone check-ins. Additionally, there will be assessments done using a mobile device between visits. The investigational drug is a capsule taken by mouth once a day. The safety and efficacy of the investigational oral drug have not been established. There is no guarantee that the outcome of studies will result in approval by a health authority. Your loved one’s eligibility to participate will be determined during the Screening Period. During this visit to the study site, they will:

  • Meet with the study doctor and study staff
  • Review eligibility criteria
  • Undergo an initial evaluation and assessments
  • Complete the study questionnaires

As your loved one’s study partner, your role will be to help answer questions about them or otherwise guide their participation if they are confused or unable to do s6 themselves.
