Eli Lilly’s Experimental Alzheimer’s Drug Fails in Large Trial

An experimental Alzheimer’s drug that had previously appeared to show promise in slowing the deterioration of thinking and memory has failed in a large Eli Lilly clinical trial, dealing a significant disappointment to patients hoping for a treatment that would alleviate their symptoms.

Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network Trial (DIAN-TU-001) continues despite results from Eli Lilly and Company’s EXPEDITION3 trial

German Families with Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer’s Disease Meet for the First Time

Nobody knew each other’s name. Even so, 60 people who either were at risk of having an autosomal-dominant Alzheimer’s mutation, or were accompanying someone who was, exchanged information about a shared problem.
