The results of the study demonstrated statistically significant improvement in cognition and global function for patients treated with NAMENDA XR 28 mg plus an AChEI compared to placebo plus an AChEI.

Pharmacyclics, Inc. Research Report
On June 16, 2013, Pharmacyclics, Inc. (Pharmacyclics) announced the results of two separate Phase 2 studies suggesting that ibrutnib showed efficacy when used as a monotherapy in patients with relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) or diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). The Company sponsored both studies and is jointly developing ibrutnib with Janssen Research & Development, LLC. The findings at EHA for patients with MCL or DLBCL expand on the results reported by investigators in 2012. Among patients with relapsed/refractory MCL, ibrutnib achieved an overall response rate (ORR) of 68%, including a complete response (CR) of 21% where all signs of cancer are gone, and a partial response (PR) of 47%. In the second study among relapsed/refractory DLBCL patients, investigators examined whether ibrutinib would be more active in the Activated B-cell-like (ABC) subtype of DBCL compared to those with the Germinal Center B-Cell-like (GCB) subtype. Results revealed that patients with the ABC subtype showed a preferential response to ibrutinib monotherapy compared to those with the GCB subtype, with ORR response rate of 41% vs. 5%, respectively.
