Gladstone and Lundbeck collaborate to study neurovascular disease
Date:7/21/2010

The Gladstone Institutes and the international pharmaceutical company H. Lundbeck A/S have announced a collaborative research agreement to study and identify therapeutic candidates for neurological diseases. The agreement funds research at the Gladstone Center for Translational Research led by Gladstone investigator Katerina Akassoglou, PhD, and establishes the new Lundbeck Center for Neurovascular and Immuno-imaging at the Gladstone Institute of Neurological Disease.

Dr. Akassoglou's pioneering research on blood proteins identified novel targets for therapeutic intervention in neurological diseases. Dr. Akassoglou has also developed imaging techniques to study neurovascular diseases in vivo, which will enable a better understanding of the origins and progress of these diseases, and thus find more practical strategies for disease detection and treatment.

"Our research on the role of blood proteins in brain functions has identified new targets for therapeutic intervention in multiple sclerosis and other neurological diseases," said Dr. Akassoglou. "Collaborating with the outstanding scientists at Lundbeck, offers great hope for discovering what triggers these diseases and developing novel therapeutic agents."

"Through its basic research into the origins of neurological disease, Gladstone has built an impressive knowledge into potential strategies and targets for treating devastating neurological diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease," said Peter Hngaard Andersen, Executive Vice President of Research, H. Lundbeck A/S. "We are looking forward to applying new imaging technologies to help evaluate and translate these discoveries into patient benefits."

"Lundbeck is a truly visionary company with a well-focused strategy for building a pipeline to treat neurological disease," said Gladstone president R. Sanders Williams, MD. "We are enthusiastic about the potential of this important collaboration."
