Elan Reports Second Quarter And First Half 2012 Financial Results

At the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Vancouver, Canada July 15-19, 2012, data from the ELND005 Phase 2 trials in mild/moderate Alzheimer’s disease describing its effect on both brain scyllo-inositol and myo-inositol levels were presented. In addition, data were also presented on the effects of oral ELND005 on neuropsychiatric symptoms in the Phase 2 trials and the potential role of myo-inositol reduction.

In the second quarter, Elan and Proteostasis Therapeutics, Inc. (Proteostasis) terminated their Strategic Alliance and License Agreement. Elan retains its approximate 24% equity interest in Proteostasis.
