We are developping a clinical trial that evaluates the efficacy and safety of an oral medication that inhibits an enzyme released by a dental germ in patients with moderate Alzheimer’s disease.
The GAIN trial (code COR388-010) is a phase III clinical trial and we are carrying out in Spain, in the General University Hospital of Catalonia, with the collaboration between the services of neurology, neuropsychology, neuroradiology and odontology, coordinated by Dr. Balaguer, neurologist and director of research.
– Dr. Balaguer, scientific director of the UDIC, has directed the course of Coordination and Practical Management of clinical trials in Neurology (module from 5:30 hours). Completed during the LXX Annual Meeting of the Spanish Society of Neurology (Seville, 24 November 2018).
– Continue the development of our projects in Parkinson’s disease: anti-alfasinuclein monoclonal antibodies, gastric-retention levodopa, antidiscinetic drug in advanced Parkinson’s, new drug against hallucinations and delusions in Parkinson’s disease dementia.
– UDIC is performing several clinical trials in Alzheimer’s disease: oral drug acting like inhibitor of amyloid, anti-amyloid monoclonal antibodies (intravenously and subcutaneously), neuromodulator drug in moderated Alzheimer’s disease.
– Many patients still are taking part in a study in Progressive Supranuclear Paralysis with an anti-tau monoclonal antibodies.
