Transition Therapeutics Inc. ("Transition" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: TTHI, TSX: TTH) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Transition Therapeutics Ireland Limited ("TTIL") completed enrolment of the Phase 2 clinical study evaluating neuropsychiatric drug candidate ELND005 as a treatment for agitation and aggression in patients with mild, moderate and severe Alzheimer's disease ("AD").

The objectives of the Phase 2 clinical study ("Harmony AD Study") are to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of ELND005 over 12 weeks of treatment in patients with mild to severe AD, who are experiencing at least moderate levels of agitation/aggression. The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study has enrolled 350 AD patients at 69 clinical sites in the United States, Canada, Spain and the United Kingdom. The primary efficacy endpoint of the study is the change from baseline in the Neuropsychiatric Inventory – Clinician ("NPI-C") scale of agitation and aggression. It is anticipated that the top-line data from the Harmony AD Study will be announced mid-year 2015.
