vTv Therapeutics Announces Topline Results of Phase 2 Elevage Study of Azeliragon in Patients with Mild Alzheimer’s Disease and Type 2 Diabetes

HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — vTv Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: VTVT) today announced that the Phase 2 Elevage study of azeliragon in people with mild Alzheimer’s disease and type 2 diabetes did not meet its primary objective of demonstrating an improvement in cognition as assessed by the 14-item Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale – Cognitive Subscale (ADAS-cog14) relative to placebo. The 6-month trial investigated the efficacy and safety of 5 mg azeliragon administered orally once daily compared to placebo in 43 people with mild probable Alzheimer’s disease and type 2 diabetes. The azeliragon treated group (n=21) had a 1.8 point decline from baseline in ADAS-cog14 compared to a placebo (n=22) decline of 0.35. These differences were not statistically significant. Consistent with previous studies, azeliragon was generally well-tolerated with similar incidences of treatment-emergent adverse events overall and by system organ class in both treatment groups.

“We will continue to analyze the data to determine if there are potential benefits or future applications for azeliragon in Alzheimer’s, dementia or related indications that we or other interested parties may seek to pursue,” said Steve Holcombe, chief executive officer, vTv Therapeutics. “On behalf of vTv Therapeutics, we would like to extend our most sincere and heartfelt gratitude to study participants, their families, physicians and caregivers for their commitment to this important study despite the challenging circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
