About Alzheimer's Disease

AD is a progressive brain disorder that gradually destroys a person's memory and ability to learn, reason, make judgments, communicate and carry out daily activities. AD is characterised by the progressive destruction of brain cells leading to a decline in mental function and eventually, Alzheimer patients need complete care.

Current estimates show that approximately four million people suffer from AD in the US and 15 million worldwide. Most available treatments produce an increase of the acetylcholine levels by inhibiting AChE, the enzyme responsible for its breakdown. Currently used therapies have significant side-effects which can occur with a frequency of up to 50% for nausea for instance. These treatments generally require complicated titration schemes in order to minimise these cholinergic side-effects, which is a challenge when dealing with memory deficient patients.

An AChE inhibitor with a better tolerance profile than existing treatments and with an easierdosing schedule could improve patient compliance and therefore optimise the patient's treatment.
