June 23, 2016

(Manged Care Magazine) – The first patient has been vaccinated with an active tau vaccine, AADvac1 (Axon Neuroscience), in the phase 2 ADAMANT trial. AADvac1 was developed to be the first disease-modifying tau vaccine for patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other tauopathies. The ADAMANT trial is a 24-month, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, double-blind, multicenter study designed to assess the safety and efficacy of AADvac1 in patients with mild AD.
