J&J, Pfizer Alzheimer’s Study Will Be Presented in Early October

June 20, 2012

Researchers will present the results of two late-stage studies on Johnson & Johnson (JNJ:US) and Pfizer Inc. (PFE:US)’s experimental drug for Alzheimer’s disease, bapineuzumab, at the American Neurological Association meeting in early October.

The findings of the two studies will be presented in Boston on Oct. 8 in a session dedicated to immune-based treatments for neurological disorders, according to the meeting program posted on the neurological association’s website. The results, if positive, could lead the companies to file for U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval of the medicine.
