Another BACE inhibitor fails in phase III trials

On June 12, AstraZeneca and Eli Lilly terminated their two Phase III clinical trials of oral amyloid targeting β-secretase (BACE) inhibitor lanabecestat in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The partners made the decision to terminate AMARANTH (NCT02245737) and the DAYBREAK-ALZ (NCT02783573) trials after an independent data monitoring committee concluded they were unlikely to meet primary endpoints based on interim analysis. The related AMARANTH extension trial (NCT02972658) will also be discontinued. This termination is preceded by recent failures of BACE inhibitors in late stage clinical development for the treatment of AD.
