Longevity.Technology: Industrially significant Alzheimer’s drug trial results warrant cautious excitement

In late September, Eisai and Biogen announced the completion of Eisai’s international Phase 3 Clarity Alzheimer’s clinical trial of lecanemab, an "investigational anti-amyloid beta (Aβ) protofibril antibody for the treatment of mild cognitive impairment (MCI)."
