Biogen halts late-stage trials on Alzheimer’s drug

March 22nd, 2019

Dr. Andrew Budson comments on the failure of Alzheimer's Drug and gives hope to the future of the fight against Alzheimer's.

Dr. Andrew E. Budson, chief of cognitive and behavioral neurology at the Boston VA Health Care System, said he wasn’t surprised that the drug didn’t work. Close to a dozen drugs targeting amyloids have failed, said Budson, whose practice participated in the clinical trial of aducanumab.

“If you put it in that context, the remarkable thing would be that it actually worked,” he said. 

In a sense, Budson said, the drug’s failure has a bright side, because it will push drug makers to focus on other potential targets, such as the tangled proteins known as tau. Several drugs taking that approach are under study, he said. “I am very, very hopeful . . . that we will end up with a good drug that could actually work,” Budson said.
