Hormone-targeting Alzheimer’s trial ready to begin as final patient selected
Actinogen Medical ASX: ACW (‘ACW’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to announce it has enrolled the final patient into XanADu, its Phase II clinical trial of Xanamem in the treatment of patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease, according to a recent press release.
A total of 186 patients have been enrolled into the study, surpassing the Company’s initial target of 174 patients. The increased enrolment numbers followed high engagement from study sites and research teams participating in this important global Alzheimer’s trial.
XanADu is a randomized, double-blind, multi-centre clinical study comparing Xanamem to placebo in patients with mild dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease. XanADu is the largest and most comprehensive international Alzheimer’s treatment trial run by an Australian biotech company.
The final patient will complete the trial in four months, following three months of treatment with Xanamem or placebo followed by a one-month observation period off-treatment. All the trial data will then be collated, reviewed, and quality controlled, before being analysed. The Company is on track to report out the results during the second quarter 2019, as previously announced.
