A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of pridopidine in Huntington’s disease
We examined the effects of 3 dosages of pridopidine, a dopamine-stabilizing compound, on motor function and other features of Huntington’s disease, with additional evaluation of its safety and tolerability. This was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in outpatient neurology clinics at 27 sites in the United States and Canada. Two hundred twenty-seven subjects enrolled from […]
Donepezil for dementia with Lewy bodies: a randomized, placebo-controlled trial
Objective: Because cholinergic deficits are prominent in dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), we investigated the effects of a cholinesterase inhibitor, donepezil, in such patients in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled exploratory phase 2 trial.; Methods: One-hundred forty patients with DLB, recruited from 48 specialty centers in Japan, were randomly assigned to receive placebo or 3, 5, […]
Two galantamine titration regimens in patients switched from donepezil
Objectives: In addition to inhibiting acetylcholinesterase, galantamine has allosteric-modulating activity at nicotinic receptors. This may make galantamine an attractive option for patients starting treatment for Alzheimer’s disease (AD), but also for those who have not benefited from their current therapy. This study explored outcomes in subjects with AD transitioning from donepezil because of insufficient tolerability […]
