Amyloid beta (Abeta) may play a central role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer disease. A functional gamma-secretase inhibitor, LY450139, was developed that inhibits Abeta formation in whole cell assays, transgenic mice, and beagle dogs. The authors wished to determine the safety and tolerability of this drug, and the reduction of Abeta in plasma and(More)
LY450139 dihydrate, a gamma-secretase inhibitor, was studied in a randomized, controlled trial of 70 patients with Alzheimer disease. Subjects were given 30 mg for 1 week followed by 40 mg for 5 weeks. Treatment was well tolerated. Abeta(1-40) in plasma decreased by 38.2%; in CSF, Abeta(1-40) decreased by 4.42 +/- 9.55% (p = not significant). Higher drug(More)
In a recent study of women with postmenopausal osteoporosis, treatment with teriparatide for a median of 19 months increased bone mineral density and decreased the risk of vertebral and nonvertebral fractures. Using the same cohort, the current study evaluated the relationship between these therapeutic effects and the patient's baseline age, vertebral bone(More)
UNLABELLED The relationship between early changes in biochemical markers of bone turnover and the subsequent BMD response to daily teriparatide therapy in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis was studied. Changes in five biochemical markers, obtained from a subset of women enrolled in the Fracture Prevention Trial, were examined. Early increases in the(More)
Parathyroid hormone (PTH)(1-34), given once daily, increases bone mass in a variety of animal models and humans with osteoporosis. However, continuous PTH infusion has been shown to cause bone loss. To determine the pharmacokinetic profile of PTH(1-34) associated with anabolic and catabolic bone responses, PTH(1-34) pharmacokinetic and serum biochemical(More)
The therapeutic effects of selective cholinergic replacement using oral xanomeline, an m1/m4 receptor agonist, were assessed in a multicenter study of 343 patients with Alzheimer disease (AD). Patients were randomized to parallel treatment arms (placebo, 25, 50, and 75 mg t.i.d. xanomeline) and followed through 6 months of double-blind therapy and 1 month(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the dose-response relationship, efficacy and safety of tabalumab, a human monoclonal antibody that neutralises membrane-bound and soluble B-cell activating factor (BAFF), in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with inadequate response to methotrexate (MTX). METHODS In this phase 2, 24-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled,(More)
Teriparatide (rhPTH[1-34]) affects calcium metabolism in a pattern consistent with the known actions of endogenous parathyroid hormone (PTH). This report describes the pharmacokinetics and resulting serum calcium response to teriparatide in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. Pharmacokinetic samples for this analysis were obtained from 360 women who(More)
Ixekizumab (LY2439821), a humanized immunoglobulin G subclass 4 (IgG4) monoclonal antibody that selectively binds and neutralizes interleukin (IL) 17A has demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of psoriasis. A population pharmacokinetics-pharmacodynamics model was developed using NONMEM 7.2 to describe the temporal relationship between ixekizumab(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of tabalumab, a monoclonal antibody that neutralises membrane-bound and soluble B-cell activating factor (BAFF), in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who showed inadequate response to tumour necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors. METHODS Patients on stable methotrexate and with inadequate response to(More)
