Sangamo BioSciences Announces Presentation Of Clinical Data From Alzheimer's Disease Program
Date:11/15/2013

the nerve cells of the brain were not deteriorating significantly over this time period
  • Efficacy assessments such as mental state (MMSE), cognition (ADAS-Cog) and activities of daily living (ADAS-ADL), demonstrated no evidence of accelerated decline over 24 months, although the sample size was too small to allow any conclusions to be drawn regarding improvement in symptoms.
  • About the Ongoing CERE-110 Phase 2 Study
    Forty-nine (49) patients with mild to moderate AD were treated with a single administration of CERE-110 at 10 clinical sites throughout the U.S. Approximately half of the patients received CERE-110 while the other half received an appropriate sham (placebo) surgery control treatment. Patients will be followed for a minimum of two years with respect to safety, brain imaging, as well as measures of cognitive function and quality of life - standard tests used in Alzheimer's clinical trials. The clinical study was carried out in collaboration with the Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study (ADCS) based at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) and funded by a grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA). Enrollment was completed in March 2013 and data are expected in 2015.

    About CERE-110
    CERE-110 is an adeno-associated viral (AAV) vector that encodes the gene for nerve growth factor (NGF), a naturally occurring protein that maintains survival of nerve cells in the brain. CERE-110 is surgically injected into the nucleus basalis of Meynert (NBM), a brain region where cholinergic nerve cell degeneration occurs in AD. Delivery of NGF using an AAV vector has the potential to induce sustained expression of NGF, resulting in long-lasting protection and preservation of cholinergic nerves. The cholinergic system is important in memory and cognitive function, and a restoration of the function of this system may slow the progression of the disease and possibly improve memory in individuals with AD.
