After Solanezumab, What’s Next? Alzheimer’s Options Take The Stage At CTAD

Biomarker study raises hopes for Alzheimer's blood test

Research led by UK company Proteome Sciences and King's College London could lead to a clinical blood test for Alzheimer's disease within five years, and, more immediately, could be helpful in selecting patients for clinical trials of new drugs for the condition. Given the enormous failure rate for drug trials in this indication, it is thought that recruiting patients to drug trials earlier in the disease process before irreversible damage is caused could prove more effective, especially as it is thought that Alzheimer's can be asymptomatic for up to ten years.


Discontinuation of iv bapineuzumab places solanezumab under scrutiny

Having failed to meet its co-primary endpoints in the second of four Phase III trials, development of iv bapineuzumab in Alzheimer's disease has been abandoned.
