Third-Party Japanese Study Suggests Drug Improves Memory

SARASOTA, Fla., Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Roskamp Institute today announced that its promising new drug application for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease has received positive validation from an independent human clinical study conducted at the Tokyo Medical University in Japan. The study, which suggests the drug, Nilvadipine, can prevent the onset of Alzheimer's disease in patients with memory problems, is detailed in the International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, a highly prestigious medical research journal.

The Japanese study was conducted over the course of a 20-month period, where a group of 15 amnestic mild cognitive impairment (MCI) patients with essential hypertension were divided into two groups.

The study found that the group treated with Nilvadipine had stabilized their decline in memory over the 20 months; whereas, the group treated with Amlodipine had continued to suffer loss of cognitive function, which was double that of the small decline in the Nilvadipine controlled group.

"Although the study was conducted with a small sample size, this third- party validation is extremely encouraging, as there appears to be a strong protective effect from developing Alzheimer's in memory-troubled patients who were given Nilvadipine," said Dr. Michael Mullan, director of the Roskamp Institute, who has been researching the drug for its use in Alzheimer's disease.

The Roskamp Institute, which owns the worldwide proprietary rights to use Nilvadipine for Alzheimer's disease, has been conducting its own human clinical study in partnership with the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience in Dublin, Ireland, and has recently reported in March that the use of the drug in Alzheimer's pat
