NEW YORK, March 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anavex Life Sciences Corp. ("Anavex" or the "Company") (OTCQB:AVXL), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel drug candidates to treat Alzheimer's, diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) and various types of cancer, today announced that a report in the current issue of peer-reviewed International Pharmaceutical Industry Journal ("IPI Journal") predicts that ANAVEX 2-73 will have a meaningful effect in Alzheimer's disease based on the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive ("ADAS-Cog"), especially when combined with donepezil (Aricept®), the world's best-selling Alzheimer's drug. The Company believes this drug combination, called ANAVEX PLUS, is a compelling commercial opportunity because of its potential to treat symptoms of Alzheimer's while also possibly modifying or reversing the course of the disease. A Phase 1b/2a clinical trial of ANAVEX PLUS, is scheduled to begin mid 2014.
