Hi. Since you are an RN and are living this disease as a caregiver I will leave you the website on current clinical trials in FTD. I do not know what variant of FTD he has, if this is familial etc. please take a look at this page and we can discuss trials like internasal oxytocin or some of these tau protein inhibitors.
