Download: ‘Drug repositioning for Alzheimer’s disease: The search for a cure’
Farid Khan, Chief Executive Officer, PharmaKure kindly provided this whitepaper on ‘Drug repositioning for Alzheimer’s disease: The search for a cure.’ The paper suggests that ‘drug repositioning offers great promise for quickly bringing new therapeutic options to patient care’.
Following further research, the paper finds that ‘Existing drugs have been shown to be safe in patients, so if these drugs could be found to work for other diseases, then this would drastically reduce drug development costs and risks, creating a huge investment potential’.
Other approaches for various diseases using an existing compound will also be discussed at the World Drug Repositioning Congress USA. If you are looking to build your pipeline then you must attend!
