June 8, 2007 - Experts call it "genuine, tangible, quantifiable hope" for Alzheimer's patients with a moderate form of the illness. "Within three years, it's all but certain we'll have disease modifying drugs that fundamentally change the nature of Alzheimer's," says Sam Gandy, M.D., chair of the National Medical and Scientific Advisory Council of the Alzheimer's Assn. and director of the Farber Inst. for neurosciences In Philadelphia.
Gandy says that if test results for the first new drug, Alzhemed, from Neurochem, are positive, "the Food and Drug Administration could choose to fast-track the drug and we could conceivably see it approved next year."
Dozens of new drugs are in the pipeline. "Dealing with Alzheimer's will be a bit like treating cancer in the sense that we'll need a large number of treatments," says Huntington Potter, director of the Johnnie B. Byrd Sr. Alzheimer's Center and Research Institute in Tampa, Fla. "Some people will respond well to one treatment, others to another. And we may need to use a cocktail of drugs."
Scientists are also working all out to determine the genes and other biological markers that can predict the disease before symptoms appear.
"Our best hope is to catch this disease early," says Morgan. "And if we can understand who is most at risk, we can begin treating them before it ever takes hold."
