    “Broader understanding needed” as Alzheimer’s drug fails

    20.02.17 Hopes of a drug treatment for Alzheimer’s disease have been dealt another blow by the failure of verubecestat during experimental trials. Pharmaceutical company Merck called a halt to the trial with people with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s, with “virtually no chance of finding a positive clinical effect.” Alzheimer’s Research UK policy director Dr Matthew Norton said that a broader understanding was needed of the neurological effects of dementia. “We need to understand the targets in the brain that we can hit with new treatments,” he said. “To use a football analogy, we’re just taking single long shots at the goal but we need to be starting and building up our attack from the back of the pitch.” Merck is to carry on evaluating verubecestat in people with prodromal Alzheimer’s disease on the basis that it may inhibit changes that occur in the brain prior to onset. Norton added: “Two or three drugs are coming in the next few years that we do have high hopes for.”
