It is estimated that currently 4 million people in the United States may have Alzheimer's disease. The disease usually occurs after age 65, although younger people also may develop Alzheimer's.
The Family Resource Center provides health and social services to older persons with physical or cognitive impairments (including Alzheimer's disease) who are having difficulty managing independently in their own homes.
According to the company, Eisai also communicated that it is exploring the potential for a phase 3 study with BAN2401 in subjects with amyloid pathology in the brain, who are in earlier stages of Alzheimer's disease than the patients previously studied.
*Do you know that Alzheimer's disease doesn't develop overnight?
A total of 161 people had both cancer and Alzheimer's disease, whereas that number would have been expected to be 281 for cancer and 246 for Alzheimer's disease when considering how often the diseases occur in the general population.
"Using 3-D mapping methods, we were able to look at the different regions of the brain affected in people with maternal or paternal ties to Alzheimer's disease," said Honea.
Research in Alzheimer's disease still aims at elucidating the basic pathomechanisms.
'This conference will bring together leaders from the research community who share our commitment to improving outcomes for patients with Alzheimer's disease,' said Remi Barbier, President & CEO.
It led to the discovery of amyloid precursor protein that produces deposits of amyloid fragments in the brain which is the suspected culprit of Alzheimer's disease. Since then, the amyloid precursor protein has been extensively studied because of its association with Alzheimer's disease.
Reportedly, this confirmatory phase 3 study follows the results from the phase 2b study of BAN2401 in 856 patients with early Alzheimer's disease that robustly demonstrated slowing of clinical decline with good tolerability after 18 months treatment.
Eisai and BioArctic remain dedicated and will continue the development of BAN2401 in early Alzheimer's disease. A confirmatory phase 3 study of BAN2401 is planned to be initiated in March 2019, as earlier communicated.
The only approved medications for Alzheimer's disease relieve some symptoms but do not halt disease progression.
