About Archer Pharamaceuticals
Archer Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Archer) was founded in 2008 and specializes in drug discovery for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Our Founding

Led by Chief Executive Officer and Chief Scientific Officer Michael Mullan, M.B.B.S., Ph.D. and Chief Operations Officer and Associate Chief Scientific Officer Fiona Crawford, Ph.D., Archer was created to progress basic research conducted at the not-for-profit Roskamp Institute in Sarasota, Florida, into human clinical trials

Included in this research is clinical development of Nilvadipine as a therapeutic for Alzheimer’s Disease. A Phase I/IIA human clinical trial was conducted in Alzheimer’s patients in partnership with the Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. This trial showed that Nilvadipine was well-tolerated in Alzheimer’s disease patients, and, together with extensive preclinical data in laboratory models of Alzheimer’s Disease, laid the foundation for a Phase III double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial of Nilvadipine (the NILVAD study) which was concluded in 2017. Analyses are ongoing and study results are expected to become public in Q1 2018.

Our Motivation
By 2025, the number of people age 65 and older in the US with Alzheimer's disease is estimated to reach 7.1 million—a 40 percent increase from the 5 million age 65 and older currently affected. By 2050, the US population effected by Alzheimer's disease may nearly triple, from 5 million to a projected 13.8 million (over 46 million worldwide), barring the development of medical breakthroughs to prevent, slow or stop the disease.
