Prana Provides Clinical Trials Update
Prana Biotechnology today reported on the progress of its lead development asset PBT2 in Phase II trials for Huntington disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Across the two trials approximately 37% have been dosed to 6 months or longer, twice the duration of the previous Phase II Alzheimer’s trial . 1,2 PBT2 has been well tolerated and both trials are on schedule with very pleasing retention rates and compliance. Each Independent Data Safety Monitoring Board for the two trials met at the end of March and recommended that each trial continue as planned without any protocol changes.
