Report on 547 New Medicines in Development for Neurological Disorders Released in San Antonio
Date:3/5/2008

SAN ANTONIO, March 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) delivered a new report today on medicines in the research pipeline for neurological diseases. The report found America's pharmaceutical research companies are testing 547 new medicines to help treat neurological diseases.

"We released this report in San Antonio because of its particular relevance to the health of this city's population and to the population in Texas," said PhRMA Senior Vice President Ken Johnson.

The Alzheimer's Foundation has found that Hispanics are at greater risk to develop dementia than the rest of the population, and the number of Hispanics with Alzheimer's disease is expected to grow dramatically in the coming years. Additionally, stroke has been found to be the fourth leading cause of death among Hispanics, according to the American Stroke Association.

"The medicines now in the research pipeline will add to the substantial progress made in the last five years by biopharmaceutical companies in developing new and more effective neurological treatments," said PhRMA President and CEO Billy Tauzin. "The growing number of older Americans nationwide, who are susceptible to conditions such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, will especially benefit from these new medicines. This strong commitment to research is a product of the
