Podcast: Using Antibodies to Treat Alzheimer’s a No-Brainer

By Marc Dresner, Senior Editor, IBC Life Sciences

While antibody therapies today are most commonly associated with oncology and inflammatory diseases, the next big breakthroughs may be on the neurology front.

Dr. Trudi Veldman, Senior Director of Biologics Generation at AbbVie Bioresearch Center, says deploying bispecifics as a “Trojan Horse” to enhance transport across the blood brain barrier could finally satisfy some extreme unmet needs.

“I see a lot of opportunities around Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.”

“I see a lot of opportunities around neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease,” said Veldman.

In this podcast interview for Inside Antibody Engineering, Dr. Veldman explains:

• Why she thinks antibody applications in neurology look so promising

• Where she sees impressive progress elsewhere in the field

• Why Fc receptor biology needs more attention and more!
