Abstract The majority of putative disease-modifying treatments in development for Alzheimer’s disease are directed against the amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide. Among the anti-Aβ therapeutic approaches, the most extensively developed is immunotherapy—specifically, passive immunization through administration of exogenous monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Although testing of mAbs has been fraught with failure and confusing results, the experience gained from these trials has provided important clues for better ...

Abstract Introduction The Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network Trials Unit (DIAN-TU) trial is an adaptive platform trial testing multiple drugs to slow or prevent the progression of Alzheimer's disease in autosomal dominant Alzheimer's disease (ADAD) families. With completion of enrollment of the first two drug arms, the DIAN-TU now plans to add new drugs to the platform, designated as the Next Generation (NexGen) prevention trial. Methods In collaboration with ADAD families, philanthropic org...

Aducanumab, a human monoclonal antibody that selectively targets aggregated Aβ, reduces soluble and insoluble Aβ in the brain, an action accompanied by a dose-dependent slowing of clinical decline in treated patients.

Disease-modifying alternatives are sorely needed for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders, a group of diseases that afflict approximately 50 million Americans annually. Immunotherapy is one of the most developed approaches in this direction. Vaccination against amyloid-β, α-synuclein, or tau has been extensively explored, specially as the discovery that these proteins may propagate cell-to-cell and be accessible to antibodies when embedded into the plasma membrane or in the extracellular...

A new secondary prevention trial in older people with amyloid accumulation at high risk for Alzheimer’s disease dementia should provide insights into whether anti-amyloid therapy can delay cognitive decline.

The amyloid cascade hypothesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is testable: it implies that interference with Aβ aggregation and plaque formation may be therapeutically useful. Aβ42 immunisation of amyloid precursor protein (APP) transgenic mice prevented plaque formation and caused removal of existing plaques. The first clinical studies of Aβ immunisation in AD patients (AN1792, Elan Pharmaceuticals) were halted when some patients suffered side effects. Since our confirmation that Aβ immunisation c...

Anti-amyloid-β immunization leads to amyloid clearance in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, but the effect of vaccination on amyloid-β-induced neuronal pathology has not been quantitatively examined. The objectives of this study were to address the effects of anti-amyloid-β active immunization on neurite trajectories and the pathological hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease in the human hippocampus. Hippocampal sections from five patients with Alzheimer’s disease enrolled in the AN1792 Phase 2a tri...
