WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms focusing on pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that a drug's effect on delaying the progression from mild cognitive impairment to Alzheimer's disease is the attribute that most influences neurologists' prescribing decisions in the treatment of mild cognitive impairment. Clinical trial data and expert opinion shows that Myriad Genetics' Flurizan has advantages in this attribute over Eisai/Pfizer's Aricept/Bracco's Memac, the current sales leader and gold standard therapy for mild cognitive impairment.

The new report entitled Mild Cognitive Impairment: An Off-Label Market with Significant Unmet Need and High Prevalence Carries Substantial Opportunity finds that, following its launch in 2010, Flurizan will replace Aricept as the gold standard for mild cognitive impairment. Surveyed U.S. neurologists indicate that they would prescribe Flurizan to 20% of their patients with mild cognitive impairment and the report forecasts that Flurizan will earn a 23% patient share in the U.S. market in 2016.

"Clinical trial data suggests that Flurizan has disease-modifying properties, an asset that interviewed experts expect will make the drug more effective at delaying the onset of Alzheimer's disease than currently available drugs," said Bethany Kiernan, Ph.D., analyst at Decision Resources. "Flurizan's safety and tolerability profile is also better than other emerging competitors, and this, along with its efficacy, will make it the gold standard in the treatment of mild cognitive impairment in 2016."
