Alzheimer's Database of 4,000 Clinical trial Subjects to be Made Available

Drugmakers are uniting together to create one large database that will include results of failed Alzheimer’s disease drug studies. The database will hopefully create a larger pool of information for researchers to use in future drug recipes. The hope is to learn why a drug failed and work on a way to fix it so it will work.

The Coalition Against Major Diseases believes the database will save valuable time and money that may have otherwise been wasted on a trial another company has already gone through. The idea is two heads are better than one or in this case, 13 companies are better than one. The coalition made the move after years of almost no advancement into the cause or cure of many neurological diseases. The coalition hopes to form a similar database for Parkinson’s disease as well.
