Abstract

LY450139 dihydrate, a γ-secretase inhibitor, was studied in a randomized, controlled trial of 70 patients with Alzheimer disease. Subjects were given 30 mg for 1 week followed by 40 mg for 5 weeks. Treatment was well tolerated. Aβ1-40 in plasma decreased by 38.2%; in CSF, Aβ1-40 decreased by 4.42 ± 9.55% (p = not significant). Higher drug doses may result in additional decreases in plasma Aβ concentrations and a measurable decrease in CSF Aβ.
