  • Publication number: 20230279088
    Abstract: A brain-penetrating composition of amyloid-? binding peptide is disclosed. This may be useful in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, for example as a bifunctional molecule, comprising a blood-brain barrier crossing antibody and an amyloid-? targeting peptide linked via an Fc fragment that is able to transmigrate across the blood-brain barrier into the brain, and compositions comprising same. Methods of using this composition for treating Alzheimer's disease are disclosed.
    Type: Application
    Filed: March 14, 2023
    Publication date: September 7, 2023
    Inventors: Balu Chakravarthy, Danica Stanimirovic, Yves Durocher
  • Publication number: 20230257424
    Abstract: A brain-penetrating composition of amyloid-ß binding peptide is disclosed. This may be useful in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, for example as a bifunctional molecule, comprising a blood-brain barrier crossing antibody and an amyloid-ß targeting peptide linked via an Fc fragment that is able to transmigrate across the blood-brain barrier into the brain, and compositions comprising same. Methods of using this composition for treating Alzheimer's disease are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20210206842
    Abstract: The present disclosure concerns antibodies specific for the Na v.7 polypeptides which are capable of antagonizing the biological activity of the Na v.7 polypeptide. The anti-Na v.7 antibodies can be used for alleviating the symptoms of pain and/or for treating or alleviating the symptoms of an hyperproliferative disease. The presence disclosure also concerns immunogens and methods for making antibodies, such as the anti-Na v.7 antibodies, comprising a single-domain antibody.

  • Patent number: 8323925
    Abstract: A protein kinase C inhibitor that binds ?-amyloid and its peptide derivatives with the same function are disclosed. These may be useful in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, for example as pseudo vaccines comprising antibodies, or as part of fusion proteins which are able to pass through cell membranes or through the blood-brain barrier. Methods of using the PKC inhibitor and its peptide derivatives for treating Alzheimer's disease are also disclosed.
