Topic: Hayley R C Shanks, Kewei Chen, Eric M Reiman, Kaj Blennow, Jeffrey L Cummings, Stephen M Massa, Frank M Longo, Anne Börjesson-Hanson, Manfred Windisch, Taylor W Schmitz (2024) p75 neurotrophin receptor modulation in mild to moderate Alzheimer disease: a randomized, placebo-controlled phase 2a trial. Nat Med. 2024 May 17. doi: 10.1038/s41591-024-02977-w.

Background: For the last three years, I've had the privilege of working with a team of researchers on a clinical trial of a novel drug for Alzheimer's disease. I'm thrilled to share that the paper detailing the trial's results was published today in Nature Medicine! We found that treatment with LM11A-31 was safe and slowed progression of Alzheimer's disease biomarkers.
