Lilly Presents Follow-Up Data on Semagacestat to Assist Future Alzheimer's Disease Research
Date:7/19/2011

INDIANAPOLIS, July 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Data were presented today from the first of two Phase III trials of semagacestat, including data from a 32 week follow-up period after dosing was halted in August 2010.

Lilly continued to gather data, including cognitive scores, for 32 weeks after dosing was stopped.

"When we made the decision to halt dosing in the trials, we committed to collecting this data in an effort to benefit future Alzheimer's research and to provide safety follow-up for the patients," said Eric Siemers, M.D., senior medical director for the Alzheimer's Disease Team at Eli Lilly and Company.

The study data confirmed preliminary results that showed that during the period of dosing, patients receiving semagacestat declined at a greater rate than patients taking placebo. During the follow-up period after dosing was halted, the cognitive and functional deficits of the patients in
