It was announced yesterday that Bapineuzumab, the Abeta immunotherapy drug, failed to meet cognitive and functional goals in a late stage trial of Alzheimer's patients who carry the APOE4 variant. “There was no reason to believe, unless there was a miracle, that this would be positive. It will only be the results of the non-APOE4 carriers that will inform us about the future [of bapineuzumab].” said Rudolph Tanzi, Joseph P. and Rose F. Kennedy Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School and MGH in Boston and Chair of the Cure Alzheimer’s Research Consortium.
