Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks a lot for the information. It seems to fit in the broad 
"cholinergic hypothesis"

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16918347

It's interesting to know, as you pointed out, that the clinical trials 
for the same drug are in different phases in different countries. It 
would be great if we can integrate such clinical trial data across 
different countries.

Best,

-Kei
