Welcome to the CHIEF-PD Trial

Welcome to the Cholinesterase Inhibitors to Prevent Falls in Parkinson’s Trial. This is a medical research trial that is examining whether drugs normally used to treat people with memory problems can be used to reduce the number of falls that people with Parkinson’s experience.

We are currently recruiting participants in a couple of sites and will be opening 26 NHS hospital sites in the UK over the next few months. We need to enrol 600 people with Parkinson’s who have experienced a fall in the past year. If you would like to participate in the trial, please go to the Taking Part page for more information.

In light of the health situation with Covid-19 we are sadly pausing recruiting any further patients to CHIEF-PD.
This is to help NHS staff direct their expertise and time where it is most required.

We will provide an update as soon as we know when we can start recruiting participants again. You are still more welcome to get in touch to register your interest.
