About the trial

Xanamem is a highly selective small molecule inhibitor of the enzyme (11β-HSD1), which increases the level of the hormone cortisol in the body. Xanamem is expected to decrease cortisol levels in brain cells by inhibiting this enzyme and consequently slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
