Analysis of clinical trials shows pipeline for therapeutics is small; 99.6 percent of drug attempts fail
Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health have conducted the first-ever analysis of clinical trials for Alzheimer’s disease (AD), revealing an urgent need to increase the number of agents entering the AD drug development pipeline and progressing successfully towards new therapy treatments. The paper, “Alzheimer’s Disease Drug Development Pipeline: Few Candidates, Frequent Failures,” was published today in the journal Alzheimer’s Research & Therapy.
A comprehensive look at all clinical trials underway shows:
- There are relatively few drugs in development for Alzheimer’s disease.
- The failure rate for AD drug development is 99.6 percent for the decade 2002-2012.
- The number of drugs has been declining since 2009.
“Our goal was to examine historical trends to help understand why Alzheimer’s disease treatment development efforts so often fail,” said Jeffrey L. Cummings, M.D., ScD, Director of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. “With an estimated 44 million people living worldwide with the condition, the study shows that the Alzheimer’s disease drug development ecosystem needs more support given the magnitude of the problem.”
