In a shocking reversal, Biogen on Tuesday said that it would resurrect an Alzheimer’s drug that the company previously said had failed and will ask the Food and Drug Administration to approve it.
The company said a “new analysis of a larger dataset” showed that the drug, aducanumab, reduced clinical decline in patients with early Alzheimer’s disease on multiple measures of the drug’s effectiveness. That directly contradicts a decision in March to halt studies of the therapy based on the recommendations of an independent monitoring board that was charged with protecting patients in the study.
I have see too much suffering from this disease to last me a life time. 20 more years? Really? I don’t want to hear or read how all the research and trails have done nothing but FAILED. Praying that a successful trail is reached before 20 years.
My wife has Alzheimer’s and we are interested in this drug. Please keep me up to date and consider her for one of your trials. Thanks
Again I was sent link to new trial for Alzheimer’s treatment but no deal for me since only for previous patients. Why in God’s name do you put this out and get ones hopes up THEN quash them with Governmental double speak. Stop putting this out for false for old people who will be dead or better yet won’t remember their names when DRUG approved. . 🔺 Then drug only slows down disease. Yeh that’s better than nothing but not by much. This isn’t first time I have been given a smidgeon of false hope by some moron in the advertising department. Hell I am just rambling.

Fantastic! This drug can be the light to Alzheimer’s patients recovery! Congratulations 👍👏👏👏😍 How do I get my aunt enrolled in this trial ? Thank you ‼️
Are there any clinical trials still open for this? If so, please provide information on how/where to participate.
This is contrary to current research on beta amyloid, considered a dead end. Drug companies bet the bank but it did NOT succeed for any of the beta amyloid drugs. Funny how trump’s FDA is ignoring all the research so company can recoup some loses. Buyer be very beware. Google recent research on beta amyloid and drug treatments.
I agree. Every statistician, including the FDA’s, knows that once you start cherry picking the data you can find the result you are looking for purely by chance. Either way, a 23% reduction in the rate of decline is hardly stunning – especially if it is accompanied by side effects. Patients are having their hopes raised when what we need is a new approach to this disease.
How do I get my wife enrolled in the clinical trials—
Have you considered testing using people w down syndrome
How can I enroll my husband in this clinical trials?
Hi Nancy, can you explain thus question please? What is the connection? Thanks
Actually I have the answer (I didn’t know that). The APP gene in Downs Syndrome produces a specific protein called amyloid precursor protein (APP). Too much APP protein leads to a buildup of protein clumps called beta-amyloid plaques in the brain.
