London, UK (PRWEB) September 01, 2014

Currently, scientists continue to face fundamental challenges in developing more effective treatments for Alzheimer's disease (AD), which reflects their poor understanding of the disease. Uncertainties also exist regarding the diagnosis of the disease, especially in its early stages, and, hence, the lack of appropriate diagnostic tests. In 2014, after decades that have witnessed a range of the greatest breakthroughs in the medicine world, there are still no disease-modifying therapies for AD and those treatments that do exist deliver only small, and usually short-term, benefits for patients. Recently, much attention has been paid to fundamental research and AD biomarker discovery, as well as to the identification of novel treatment strategies. Some of the major advancements in the field have been provided by such imaging methods as PET and MRI, which have assisted in mapping the time-course of AD as well as changes pertaining to molecules like Tau and amyloid-beta (Abeta). Studies have also profiled cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers, specifically with respect to Abeta. Nevertheless, whilst these methods are key to AD research, both are expensive and complex and hence are not readily available to much wider patient populations.

Until now, 4 medications for AD as well as 103 in the drug-development pipeline have been approved by FDA. Of these, 11, 41, 30 and 21 candidates are in Phase III, Phase II, Phase I and pre-clinical trials, respectively. An analysis of these in terms of molecule types demonstrates that small molecules make up the largest group (70% all in all), with antibodies (8%), vaccines (7%) and others (15%) following in. In terms of the major pharmacological targeting strategies, 34 (32%) of candidates are targeted around the Abeta.
