If one is aiming to make a drug for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) one should have chosen the preferred mechanism of action before one launches a project. Trying to find a new mechanism of action for drugs to treat AD is a fundamental research question that is probably too open-ended for a biotechnology company to undertake within the time limits and budgets available to a start-up company.
