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

e bodies, naturally occurring compounds produced by the body at low levels. These ketone bodies act as a secondary energy source for the brain to help maintain and improve cognitive function.

"It's a novel and effective approach to Alzheimer's disease," said Steve Orndorff, Ph.D., founder and CEO, Accera, Inc. "Similar to how insulin helps diabetics, Axona supplements energy for the brain so that neurons can continue to function properly and patients can maintain cognition. As a company focused on developing new therapies for central nervous system disorders, we're very excited about Axona's potential to help the AD community."

Axona was evaluated in a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study performed at multiple U.S. clinical centers in a population of 152 patients with probable mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease. Patients taking Axona demonstrated significant improvements in cognitive function by day 45 (as measured by the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive subscale or ADAS-Cog score). These patients also maintained a slight improvement from baseline after 90 days of daily Axona administration, whereas the placebo group demonstrated a decline. In these trials Axona was demonstrated to be safe, effective and generally well-tolerated.

Axona is supplied as a powder formulation in individual packets. Contents should be mixed with water and consumed at breakfast. With simple administration and once-a-day convenience, Axona is complementary to current Alzheimer's therapies.
