Name: solanezumab synonyms: ly2062430 therapy type: immunotherapy (passive) target type: amyloid-related condition(s): alzheimer's disease us fda status: alzheimer's disease (phase 3) company: eli lilly & co approved for: none background solanezumab is a humanized monoclonal igg1 antibody directed against the mid-domain of the aβ peptide.
John c lechleiter, chairman, president and chief executive officer, lilly said: the results of the solanezumab expedition3 trial were not what we had hoped for and we are disappointed for the millions of people waiting for a potential disease-modifying treatment for alzheimer's disease.

The latest trial of the drug solanezumab, made by eli lilly, failed to show much effect in people with the mildest form of alzheimer’s disease the study, published in the new england journal of medicine , is the formal report of the results that lilly announced in november 2016.
Monoclonal antibody in mild alzheimer’s disease in a randomized trial, solanezumab, a humanized monoclonal antibody against soluble amyloid, did not slow cognitive decline over a period of 80 weeks in patients with mild alzheimer’s disease and with pet or csf biomarkers of amyloid-related disease. In february 2014, the alzheimer's disease cooperative study began a three-year trial testing solanezumab in 1,150 asymptomatic or very mildly symptomatic people 65 and older who have biomarker evidence of brain amyloid deposition, ie, who meet a diagnosis of phases 2 or 3 of preclinical ad as proposed by the 2011 nia-aa diagnostic research criteria (see sperling et al, 2011. The alzheimer’s drug solanezumab has some effect on the disease after all, a top expert on the disease said at an international conference held in san diego solanezumab failed to demonstrate.
Patients treated with solanezumab did not experience a significant decrease in cognitive decline compared to patients treated with a placebo because of the results the company will not pursue regulatory submissions for solanezumab for the treatment of mild dementia due to alzheimer’s disease. The alzheimer’s drug solanezumab has some effect on the disease after all, a top expert on the disease said at an international conference held in san diego solanezumab failed to demonstrate statistically significant evidence of clinical efficacy according to recent results from a trial, known as expedition 3. Washington — the monoclonal antibody solanezumab may have some efficacy in delaying alzheimer's disease progression, with data from a pooled analysis of a subgroup of patients in the expedition (exp) and expedition2 (exp2) trials suggesting a potential disease modifying effect.
Analyses from the two original trials did not show a significant benefit of solanezumab for the original coprimary end points: the 11-item alzheimer’s disease assessment scale–cognitive. In prespecified analyses in expedition 1, we assessed the treatment effect of solanezumab in patients with mild alzheimer's disease (mmse score of 20 to 26 at visit 1) versus patients with moderate alzheimer's disease (mmse score of 16 to 19 at visit 1) and the treatment effect in apolipoprotein e (apoe) ε4 carriers versus noncarriers. In separate studies, solanezumab is being tested to prevent early-onset alzheimer’s in those with a gene that causes the disease to appear at a young age the large new trial will test the drug for treating the far more common late-onset form of the disease, which typically strikes those over 65.
This disease is commonly linked with the overabundance of aggregated amyloid-beta (aβ) peptide within the cerebral cortex and hippocampus (doody et al 2014) solanezumab an alzheimer’s drug is a monoclonal igg1 antibody which is used against the mid-domain of the aβ peptide (alzforumorg 2015. However, differential effects on cognitive measures were observed a benefit of solanezumab treatment was observed in patients with mild alzheimer's disease but not in patients with moderate alzheimer's disease or in the combined populations.
