Pfizer Bapineuzumab Fails, All Clinical Trials Discontinued | Alzheimer\’s Reading Room.

This is such disappointing news to the Alzheimer’s community which at its heart includes those suffering with the disease and the family caregivers suffering right along with them.

As someone who in the past has been personally involved with this disease as a caregiver for my father, I have experienced elation at the start of new drug trials – and defeat when those trials failed.  This disease just seems to be one that evades all goodhearted and extensive attempts to slow down the disease.

A cure?  That doesn’t even seem to be on any horizon I’ll see before the end of my days.  But this insidious disease can’t even be slowed down, for heaven’s sake, so that the patient and all of his/her family can enjoy a better, longer, and less-impaired life.

What a said bit of news indeed.
