Neurim Pharmaceuticals Announces Publication of Positive Effects of Add-on Circadin® in Alzheimer's Disease Patients
Jun 19 14
Neurim Pharmaceuticals announced publication of the results from an exploratory Phase 2 randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of add-on Circadin(R) (Prolonged Release melatonin 2mg) to standard therapy in Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. The study, published in the Clinical Interventions in Aging Journal, demonstrates positive effects of the drug on cognitive performance and sleep maintenance in the AD patients. In this study, 80 patients diagnosed with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease, with and without insomnia co-morbidity, receiving standard therapy (acetylcholinesterase inhibitors with or without memantine) were randomly assigned in a double-blind manner to 2 mg of Circadin(R) or placebo treatment nightly for 24-weeks. The paper reports that patients treated with Circadin(R) for 6 months had significantly better cognitive performance than those with placebo as measured by Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL) and Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE). Mean Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale - cognition (ADAS-Cog) did not differ between groups. Sleep efficiency as measured by Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) Component 4 also improved with Circadin(R). In a subgroup of patients suffering from comorbid insomnia, Circadin(R) treatment resulted in significant and clinically meaningful effects vs. placebo in mean IADL (p=0.032), MMSE (+1.5 vs. -3 points, p=0.0177) sleep efficiency (p=0.04), and median ADAS-Cog values (-3.5 vs. +3 points, p=0.045). The treatment was well tolerated.
