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.

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.
