FDA approves Lilly’s Alzheimer’s drug


United States

The US Food and Drug Administration has approved Eli Lilly and Co’s drug for early symptomatic Alzheimer’s disease, less than a month after it received the unanimous support from an outside panel of advisers. The Peripheral and Central Nervous System Drugs Advisory Committee voted 11 to zero on 10 June to recommend approval. The drug, Kisunla (donanemab), is a treatment for early symptomatic disease including people with mild cognitive impairment.
