36 Weeks of Treatment with PXT864 in Mild Alzheimer’s disease: Results from the PLEODIAL Extension Study

 

Presenter:

René Goedkoop, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Pharnext, Issy-les-Moulineaux, France

Safety and clinical efficacy of PXT864 were assessed in 45 treatment-naïve patients with mild AD in a multicenter, exploratory, single blind Phase 2 study (PLEODIAL-I). Three doses of PXT864 were administered for 4 weeks followed by 4 weeks of placebo and then a 4-week re-challenge with PXT864. Subjects were then invited to continue study treatment (same dose received in PLEODIAL-I) for a further 24 weeks in the PLEODIAL-II extension study. Patients were treated with PXT864 for 32 out of 36 weeks in the PLEODIAL-I and II studies, and were allowed to use donepezil 5 mg, if their condition warranted treatment with a symptomatic agent, during the last 12 weeks of the study.

PXT864 is a novel synergic fixed combination of baclofen and acamprosate given orally as a capsule twice a day. PXT864 was developed to restore the disrupted excitatory – inhibitory balance in the brain of patients suffering from neurodegenerative diseases (disrupted by toxic factors such as Aβ oligomeric peptides in Alzheimer’s disease). PXT864’s most advanced target indication is Alzheimer’s disease. Development in other neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are also planned.

About Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive neurodegenerative dementia. It is characterized by neuronal death in brain structures implicated with memory leading to cognitive deficits such as thinking, memory, personality and behavior disorders. The disease typically develops and worsens gradually over the course of several years and ultimately leads to death. It affects around 25 million people worldwide. Unfortunately, three out of four patients are diagnosed once the disease is at a severe stage. Alzheimer's disease has no cure and current existing therapies provide only short and modest symptomatic relief.
