Updated: Dec 8, 2021

Cassava Sciences Offers a Phase 3 Efficacy Trial of Simufilam for the Treatment of Patients with Alzheimer’s Disease

Insight Clinical Trials is now offering the the first phase 3 study to evaluate safety and efficacy of Simufilam. The trial will take place over 52 weeks and only 750 patients with Alzheimer’s disease will be accepted nationwide. The trial is open to those ages 50-87 years who suffer from mild cognitive impairment, dementia or Alzheimer's disease.

Phase 3 Alzheimer's research trial offered in Cleveland

Cassava Sciences’ Phase 3 efficacy studies of Simufilam in Alzheimer’s disease are being conducted under Special Protocol Assessments (SPA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

“We believe existing drug solutions for Alzheimer’s have limitations, and new solutions are very much needed. Our Phase 3 studies are designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Simufilam in people with Alzheimer’s disease,” said Remi Barbier, President & CEO, Cassava Sciences.

Cassava Sciences is developing Simufilam in accordance with high ethical standards and sound scientific principles. Cassava Sciences is committed to transparency and sharing information related to its Phase 3 program – for clinical protocol details, including patient eligibility, please visit:

About Simufilam

Simufilam (sim-uh-FILL-am) is a proprietary, small molecule (oral) drug that restores the normal shape and function of altered filamin A (FLNA) protein in the brain. Altered FLNA in the brain disrupts the normal function of neurons, leading to Alzheimer’s pathology, neurodegeneration and neuroinflammation. The underlying science for Simufilam is published in peer-reviewed journals, including Journal of Neuroscience, Neurobiology of Aging, Journal of Biological Chemistry, Neuroimmunology and Neuroinflammation and Journal of Prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease.
