Experimental T-817MA Therapy Currently Being Tested for Mild to Moderate Alzheimer’s Disease
T-817MA for mild to moderate Alzheimer's diseaseA Phase 2 randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group study is currently enrolling at multiple test centers in the United States to evaluate the efficacy and safety of T-817MA as a potential treatment in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease. This study is a joint phase II clinical trial between lead partner Toyama ChemicalCo., Ltd., a company associated with the Fujifilm Corporation group in Japan, and the Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study (ADCS), the largest Alzheimer’s Disease therapeutic research consortium in the United States, based at the University of California San Diego (CA). ADCS is a clinical trials consortium, established and supported by the National Institute on Aging, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), with the aim of evaluating Alzheimer’s disease interventions. It is led by Dr. Paul Aisen, one of the leading experts in the field of Alzheimer's disease in the US. The study started on March 2014 and will last for two years. The number of dementia patients is approximately 44 million worldwide, and is estimated to reach 76 million by 2030. More than half of dementia patients suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, and that tendency is expected to increase. The standard therapies available for treating the disease include acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, such as donepezil hydrochloride. However, these drugs only target the neurotransmission
