Roche Laboratories, teamed with other researchers, just published results describing a compound that reverses impaired brain cell signaling in a mouse model with Down syndrome.
The data demonstrated major cognitive and behavioral improvements in the mouse
In 2011, Roche initiated a human clinical trial testing compound, RD 1662,
in persons with Down syndrome. This is a Phase I trial testing drug safety
and tolerability. Roche expects to complete this study this year. The compound
had already been tested in healthy volunteers and was shown to be well
tolerated. A second, non-drug study to evaluate cognition and adaptive behavior
in adolescents and young adults with Down syndrome is also underway.
