WASHINGTON, March 31, 2016—Today’s Alzheimer’s disease drug pipeline, marred by more than a decade of high failure rates and public underinvestment, is offering near-term promise with 17 drugs on pace to launch in the next five years, according to a recent analysis conducted by ResearchersAgainstAlzheimer’s (RA2), an UsAgainstAlzheimer’s (UsA2) network. If only some of those drugs are successful in late-stage trials and cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the potential innovations will be a much-needed stimulus to the goal of stopping America’s most costly disease, one that affects approximately 5.3 million Americans, a number that is expected to rise precipitously during the next few decades.
