From Alzheimer's Daily News:


(Source: MarketWatch) - Ablynx today announced that Boehringer Ingelheim has submitted a Clinical Trials Application to the European regulatory authorities to start a Phase I clinical trial with a Nanobody® for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.


In January 2007, the two companies announced a worldwide research and licensing agreement to discover and develop new therapies for Alzheimer's disease using Ablynx's Nanobodies against a single disease target.

 

Dr. Edwin Moses, CEO and Chairman of Ablynx, commented: "We are excited that Boehringer Ingelheim has already submitted a CTA for this Nanobody. This development candidate has the potential to be a first-in-class therapy for Alzheimer's disease and demonstrates the power of our Nanobody platform. We look forward to seeing this program enter the clinic over the coming months."
