The next step for donanemab


United States

Donanemab, an Alzheimer’s disease drug developed by Eli Lilly and Co, is set for a review by the US Food and Drug Administration in the wake of a recommendation by the agency’s outside panel of advisers on 10 June that the drug is both safe and effective. Neither the FDA nor Lilly would comment to MedNous on a date for the final review. Nevertheless analysts who followed discussions by the panel – the Peripheral and Central Nervous System Drugs Advisory Committee – expect that whatever the timing, a formal approval is likely.
