This study will evaluate four different modified release formulation to estimate the amount of dimebon available to the body relative to the current dimebon formulation that is given three times a day. The results of this study will help inform and guide further formulation development efforts with the ultimate goal of reducing dose frequency to once-a-day or twice-a-day.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Bio-availability Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label

To estimate the absorption, safety, and tolerability of a dimebon transdermal solution relative to the dimebon immediate release oral formulation.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of Dimebon following single ascending doses. A formal single ascending dose study of this nature has...
This is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled safety study conducted in 2 study cohorts. In Cohort 1, subjects with Alzheimer's disease (n=250) will receive Dimebon ...
This study will evaluate the safety of 3 months of Dimebon dosing and the efficacy of Dimebon in improving cognitive, motor, and overall function in subjects with Huntington's Disease.
The Connection Study is a six-month confirmatory Phase 3 study to determine the safety and efficacy of Dimebon in the treatment of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease.
Neuroimaging modalities can measure different aspects of the disease process in Alzheimer's disease, although the relationship between these modalities is unclear.
The level of the presynaptic protein growth-associated protein 43 (GAP-43) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) has previously been shown to be increased in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and thus may serve as an o...
We tested the hypothesis that low plasma complement C3 is observationally and genetically associated with high risk of Alzheimer's disease.
The new National Institute on Aging and the Alzheimer's Association Research Framework for Alzheimer's disease has been developed to accelerate drug discovery and offer a common structure and language...
Sex effects on the progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD) have received less attention than other demographic factors, including onset age and education.
Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent or treat ALZHEIMER DISEASE.
A progressive form of dementia characterized by the global loss of language abilities and initial preservation of other cognitive functions. Fluent and nonfluent subtypes have been described. Eventually a pattern of global cognitive dysfunction, similar to ALZHEIMER DISEASE, emerges. Pathologically, there are no Alzheimer or PICK DISEASE like changes, however, spongiform changes of cortical layers II and III are present in the TEMPORAL LOBE and FRONTAL LOBE. (From Brain 1998 Jan;121(Pt 1):115-26)
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.
A biochemical phenomenon in which misfolded proteins aggregate either intra- or extracellularly. Triggered by factors such as MUTATION, POST-TRANSLATIONAL MODIFICATIONS, and environmental stress, it is generally associated with ALZHEIMER DISEASE; PARKINSON DISEASE; HUNTINGTON DISEASE; and TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS.
Psychiatry is the study of mental disorders and their diagnosis, management and prevention. Conditions include schizophrenia, severe depression and panic disorders among others. There are pharmaceutical treatments as well as other therapies to help...
