FDA Approves Kisunla

July 3, 2024
Kisunla is an injection for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.
On July 2, the FDA approved Kisunla (donanemab-azbt) injection for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
“Alzheimer's disease is a devastating disease for the person diagnosed and their loved ones,” said Teresa Buracchio, director of the Office of Neuroscience in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “The trial data demonstrated, convincingly, that Kisunla reduces the rate of cognitive and functional decline in patients in the mild cognitive impairment and mild dementia stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Today’s approval is evidence of the FDA’s commitment to helping more safe and effective drugs to treat Alzheimer’s disease become available.”
