Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals received IRB approval of the first human clinical study of the safety and effects of nutritional supplementation with Anatabloc® in individuals with Alzheimer's disease in April 2012. The study is being conducted in conjunction with the Roskamp Institute of Sarasota, Florida, which has been acting as a research partner in assessing the impact of Anatabloc® on Alzheimer's. In addition to the Roskamp Institute site, the study also is being conducted at the Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. Dr. Michael Mullan, M.D., Ph.D., President and CEO of the Roskamp Institute, commented: "We have known for a long time that Alzheimer's disease has a large inflammatory component. We also have observed the anti-inflammatory effects of anatabine (the active ingredient of Anatabloc®) in laboratory tests which is why we anticipate evidence of anti-inflammatory effects in this population."Dr. Curtis Wright, M.D., M.P.H, Medical Director for Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals, said, "It is our profound hope that appropriate nutritional supplementation will be of some benefit to conventional care in the population suffering from this terrible disease. When we received the initial reports of beneficial responses in individuals, we realized that it was essential to determine if such reports represented a real beneficial nutritional effect. This study is the first one that will confirm or refute a significant nutritional effect of Anatabloc® in this population."
