Eli Lilly (LLY +2.7%) CEO John Lechleiter says to use caution when extrapolating the failed clinical trials of Pfizer (PFE -0.5%) and Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ +0.2%) Alzheimer's candidate, bapineuzumab, to solanezumab, the one that [LLY has in its pipeline. "We've got to be very careful before we draw conclusions," Lechleiter says. There are differences between the drugs, how they bond for example, that could allow for different outcomes. The company expects to report clinical data for solanezumab later in Q3. (Video)
