BOSTON – The antiamyloid antibody aducanumab continued its slide around the bases this week, revealing more positive imaging and cognitive data at 36 months into the phase 1b PRIME trial.Patients who have been taking the highest dose of aducanumab, 10 mg/kg, for the duration of the study improved the most on two measures of cognition, the Mini Mental State Exam (MMSE) and the Clinical Dementia Rating Scale–sum of boxes (CDR-sb).
BOSTON – Despite years of frustrating failures, Alzheimer’s researchers keep punching away at beta-amyloid brain plaques, now apparently with a highly focused one-two of “more drug, given sooner.”Solanezumab and gantenerumab – both of which failed in earlier phase 3 studies – will be pushed forward now at much higher doses, the Alzheimer’s disease research community learned at the opening session of the Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease conference.Based on a rethinking of the failed...
SAN DIEGO – Bacteria with favorable susceptibility profiles don’t always translate reliably into treatment successes, according to a detailed study of six isolates.“Both patient and microbe factors can contribute to treatment failure, even involving pan-susceptible isolates,” Andrew Berti, PharmD, PhD, said in an interview prior to an annual scientific meeting on infectious diseases.
A modestly effective preventive therapy could vastly decrease the number of people with #MCI and #Alzheimer's - esp important since this study also found that 47 million Americans may already have brain amyloid.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
