Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Cognex

[posted 03/4/2000]
Question: My mother is having a dementia (Hardy levy) and is treated
with cognex for several years. Periodically she is tested
for liver functioning condition. Currently she tolerates
150mg a day. Her condition seems to deteroirate slowly but
I am familiar with the cognex and aricept. The former drug
seems to keep her at some low level of functioning while the
latter medicine (aricept)caused almost an immediate decline
in her condition. Thus my question is: Are
there new drugs that are more efficient in inhibiting
the acetylcholinestrase.
Thanks, Uzi Eliav

Answer: On the way, but not available clinically currently.
