Exelon Patch and Combination With Memantine Comparative Trial

2014-08-27 03:17:32 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary objective is to compare the tolerability between rivastigmine patch monotherapy and combination therapy with memantine in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). The secondary objective is to compare the efficacy and safety between rivastigmine patch monotherapy and combination therapy with memantine in patients with AD. The study hypothesis is that the tolerability of the combination therapy with memantine is not inferior to that of rivastigmine patch monotherapy in AD patients.

Description

Recently, the rivastigmine patch demonstrated efficacy comparable to the highest doses of rivastigmine capsules, with markedly improved tolerability profile. We hypothesized that combination of memantine and rivastigmine patch will be safe and well tolerated and result in more clinical benefit in patients with AD in comparison with rivastigmine patch monotherapy, for the mechanisms of the drugs are different.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A medicated adhesive patch placed on the skin to deliver a specific dose of medication into the bloodstream.

An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.

Skin tests in which the sensitizer is applied to a patch of cotton cloth or gauze held in place for approximately 48-72 hours. It is used for the elicitation of a contact hypersensitivity reaction.

A carbamate-derived reversible CHOLINESTERASE INHIBITOR that is selective for the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and is used for the treatment of DEMENTIA in ALZHEIMER DISEASE and PARKINSON DISEASE.

Removal and examination of tissue obtained through a transdermal needle inserted into the specific region, organ, or tissue being analyzed.
