Alzheimer’s Disease | Treatment Algorithms | Claims Data Analysis | US | 2018

For the estimated 3.4 million people in the United States who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease (AD), approved therapy is limited to four procognitive symptomatic agents (e.g., donepezil, memantine) that deliver modest efficacy of limited duration. Understanding today’s treatment landscape is important for emerging players as the heavily generic AD market braces for the potential entry of a variety of new, high-cost brands—namely, landmark disease-modifying therapies and new behavioral adjuncts. Our Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis content provides national patient-level claims data to explore the use of key therapies in both newly diagnosed and recently treated patients.

Questions Answered

  • What proportion of AD patients receive drug therapy within two years of diagnosis, and how quickly? What percentage of patients progress to later lines of therapy within two years of diagnosis?
  • What percentage of AD patients are treated with monotherapy versus combination therapy? What are the most widely used combination therapies?
  • What are the product-level compliance and persistency rates among drug-treated patients with AD?
