Alzheimer’s clinical trials

We are at the forefront of Alzheimer's research

Although the terms Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are often used interchangeably, they’re not the same. Dementia is what is called an ‘umbrella’ term – it’s the name given to a group of symptoms that affect your ability to think or reason clearly. Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disease of the brain. It is the most common form of dementia, accounting for up to 60-70% of cases1 worldwide.

It’s estimated that nearly 50 million people worldwide have Alzheimer’s disease2. Today’s treatments focus on treating the symptoms as there is currently no cure for the disease or proven ways to slow its progression3. So, Biogen has made a long-term commitment to furthering Alzheimer’s disease research and treatment. Our vision is to redefine Alzheimer’s disease through innovative medicines to improve the lives of patients and their caregivers. We are pushing towards novel approaches targeting the causes of Alzheimer’s disease through our clinical trials.
