Video: Accera Launches Axona(TM), First Medical Food Therapy to Help Manage Mild-to-Moderate Alzheimer's Disease
Date:3/2/2009

BROOMFIELD, Colo., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Accera, Inc., a biotechnology company delivering breakthrough therapies in central nervous system (CNS) diseases, today launched Axona(TM) in the United States for Alzheimer's disease (AD). Axona is a first-in-class medical food for the clinical dietary management of the metabolic processes associated with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's. Dispensed by prescription, it targets the metabolic deficiencies and imbalances associated with AD by providing an alternative energy source for brain cells.

Axona represents a new approach to helping manage AD symptoms and has been shown in clinical trials to safely improve cognitive function and memory in patients diagnosed with mild-to-moderate AD.

"We are happy to have this new therapeutic approach to add to our management strategies for this terrible disease," said Jeffrey L. Cummings, M.D., Director, Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer's Disease Research at UCLA, and a consultant to Accera. "By approaching the disease in a new way, Axona addresses a metabolic abnormality of Alzheimer's disease that has not previously been examined. The goal of therapy is to optimize cognitive function. Axona is safe and can be used with other common therapies for Alzheimer's."

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive and fatal neurological disease characterized by a substantial decrease in the brain's ability to metabolize glucose, which is the brain's primary source of energy. Known as hypometabolism, this defect may contribute to both the clinical and pathological course of the disease. Axona targets the metabolic defects of glucose utilization in the brain by providing an alternative energy source. Axona is digested and metabolized by the liver to form keton
