Very unfortunate news for this cruel disease, and this drug was just to slow the development.

One of the most promising drugs for Alzheimer's disease fails in clinical trials - LA Times

Quote:
An experimental drug called idalopirdine failed to help people with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease in a trio of trials that involved 2,525 patients in 34 countries. Not only did the drug fail to bring about any meaningful change in cognitive tests that are widely used in diagnosing and tracking the progress of the disease, it also failed to cause significant improvements in general measures of daily function among those taking it at any of three tested doses.

Hopefully they at least learned something about why it might have failed to help with the next thing they develop.

That's very sad. It's so hard watching someone you love slip away because of Alzheimer's.
