Phase 3 Alzheimer’s disease clinical trial for potential add-on therapy to Donepezil (Aricept) at University Hospitals

Wednesday, August 10, 2016
CLEVELAND — University Hospitals Case Medical Center is participating in a Phase III clinical research study, called MINDSET, to evaluate the effectiveness of a potential new treatment option for people with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease.  The investigational drug, RVT-101, is being tested as an add-on therapy to donepezil (brand name Aricept®). Alan Lerner, MD, Director of the Brain Health and Memory Center at UH, is the principal investigator of the study in Cleveland.
 
MINDSET is an international, multi-center, double blind, placebo-controlled study designed to evaluate the safety, efficacy and tolerability of RVT-101.  The 24-week trial will compare RVT-101 to placebo in approximately 1,150 people with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease. All study participants will remain on donepezil therapy during the trial.
