Biogen acquired the rights to an experimental drug against Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. This medicine is at an early stage of development, however, it is going to buy clinical trials this year

According to Remedium, Biogen representatives hope that the drug will be effective against confusion in patients with Alzheimer's disease and sleep disturbance in patients with Parkinson's disease.

Last year, the company stopped working on its drug against Alzheimer's, aducanumab, and then resumed it. Tests have shown that the tool improves cognitive abilities, orientation in space and strengthens memory.
