ALS Therapy Development Institute and Neurimmune Partner to Advance Treatments for ALS
Dec 6 13
ALS Therapy Development Institute together with its wholly-owned subsidiary, Anelixis Therapeutics, announced that it has formed a research partnership with Neurimmune to advance potential treatments for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The research partnership will explore a human monoclonal antibody that targets misfolded superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1). Misfolded SOD1 accumulates in familial and sporadic ALS, suggesting a generalized role as a drug target for ALS treatments. The collaboration will explore the high-affinity human antibodies developed by Neurimmune that selectively target misfolded SOD1. In preclinical studies with transgenic mice, chronic antibody treatment significantly reduced SOD1 pathology and rescued spinal cord motor neurons, resulting in significantly reduced muscle atrophy, better motor functions and increased survival.
