Alzheimer’s Disease

Home / Alzheimer’s Disease


Alzheimer’s disease is an incurable disease that, over time, progressively leads to a loss of memory and independent functioning. It can also be extremely burdensome to family members and caregivers. Currently, there is no known cure for this disease. While there are a number of drugs approved by the FDA to treat this disease, as a class, they only provide short-term, and woefully limited symptomatic relief. The industry and the medical community alike clearly recognize that better treatments are needed that are not only able to significantly affect the key symptomatology of the disease, but also its underlying disease process.

To this end, SPRI is currently engaged in a number of industry-sponsored clinical research trails aimed at attempting to determine the safety and effectiveness of new medications or medication approaches that may have the potential of reducing the magnitude of the cognitive impairments associated with this devastating disease.
