Two Phase II clinical research trials for an investigational Alzheimer's disease drug (PRX-03140) have just begun to recruit.

Target participation: more than 650 patients with clinical diagnosis of probable Alzheimer’s, or (for the second trial only) memory problems that may be a sign of Alzheimer’s.

The hope is to connect patients “with a medication that may make a difference in their functioning and quality of life” as measured by improvements in memory and cognitive function.

For information about the medication – PRX-03140 – and results of Phase 1 and Phase 2A trials, click here.
