Four Alzheimer's Clinical Trials Address a Variety of Treatment Targets - Amyloid, Tau, Synapse Formation
Date:7/29/2008

est and longest placebo-controlled AD treatment trial ever completed," Green said. "While the trial did not meet its endpoints, it was well-designed and executed, and it provided clear answers regarding Flurizan's lack of efficacy and its safety."

"The fact that both the drug-treated and placebo groups declined over the course of the trial - and that the placebo-treated patients declined at the expected rate - shows that we can do this type of trial in people with mild Alzheimer's. As the first trial to ever study a large population of mild Alzheimer's patients, we've collected very valuable data on the progression of the disease in its earliest stages. We are confident that the results of this study will help researchers in their quest to develop new and better treatments for Alzheimer's," Green added.

"This drug candidate, in this dose, in this group did not work. But, like much good science, the study raises as many questions as it does provide answers. Was the dose right? Was the study long enough? Did they start the intervention early enough in the course of the disease? Designing and executing clinical studies that answer these questions will help us defeat Alzheimer's disease," Gandy said. "The only way we are going to solve the problem of Alzheimer's is for scientists and companies to have the courage to make significant investments in these large scale trials - which may or may not work. This was a very well done study and the company and scientists are to be commended for that."

Phase IIa Trial of PBT2, a Metal-Protein Attenuating Compound, in Mild Alzheimer's

PBT2 is a metal-protein attenuating compound (MPAC) being developed by Prana Biotechnology as a potential Alzheimer's therapy. In previous research, ions of copper and zinc were found to play a role in the aggregation of beta amyloid protein, which is believed to cause functional damage in Alzheimer's. According to Prana, PBT2 reduces the toxic form of beta amyloid by prev
