SB-742457 And Donepezil In Alzheimer's Disease
A Double-Blind, Randomised, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel Group Study to Investigate the Effects of SB-742457, Donepezil and Placebo on Cognition in Subjects With Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease
The purpose of this study is to find out if SB-742457 is a safe treatment and what effects it has on the symptoms of mild to moderate Alzheimer's Disease. SB-742457 is a new treatment which is thought to increase the levels of certain chemicals in the brain that are often decreased in patients with Alzheimer's Disease.
