Kaj Blennow's research into M. Alzheimer recognized by the 2010 ECNP Neuropsychopharmacology Award
Date:9/7/2010

The European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) is pleased to announce Kaj Blennow as the recipient of the 2010 ECNP Neuropsychopharmacology Award in recognition of his original and influential contributions to Alzheimer's disease research. The ECNP Neuropsychopharmacology Award is presented annually and recognises distinguished research in neuropsychopharmacology and closely related disciplines. The award is accompanied by a prize of 20,000.

Kaj Blennow, Professor in Clinical Neurochemistry at the University of Gothenburg and Senior Consultant at the Neurochemical Laboratory of Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Gothenburg, Sweden, is one of the world's leading researchers in Alzheimer's disease. His work has focused on the development of laboratory measures for clinical diagnosis and therapy monitoring in Alzheimer's disease, with significant implications for both drug development and patient care.

"In the field of brain disorders, the development of good biomarkers can enhance the possibilities for early diagnostics and the measurement of treatment effects" Blennow said at the 23rd ECNP Congress in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. "In the future this could enable clinicians to diagnose and treat Alzheimer's disease before the person experiences any symptoms."

The scope of Blennow's research is extensive. In Alzheimer's disease, as well as biomarkers, it has embraced genetic mechanisms, neurochemical pathogenesis and neurotransmitter disturbances. He has also extended his neurochemical innovations into other fields of neuropsychopharmacology, such as schizophrenia and depression. "We clearly need new drug targets and innovative leads for novel therapies," Blennow commented on the recent closure of neuroscience labs of major pharmaceutical companies in Europe. "The basis for modern drug development, which has a strong tradition in Europe for more than 50 years improving the quality of life of people struck by brain disorders, has t
