CSL Behring Seeks Proposals for Interlaken Leadership Awards, Supporting Innovative Research Into Neuroimmunology

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Sept. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- To demonstrate its continued commitment to innovative immunoglobulin (Ig) research, CSL Behring announced today it is seeking proposals for the next round of Interlaken Leadership Awards.  Established in 2010, this annual global awards program provides monetary grants and/or product supply to advance medical research and knowledge about the potential role of immunoglobulin therapy in the treatment of neurological disorders.

From the management of primary immunodeficiency to the control of autoimmune and inflammatory conditions, Ig therapy has a wide range of indications. The Interlaken Leadership Awards program was created to help identify new clinical applications for polyvalent immunoglobulins for potential further clinical investigation, with the ultimate goal of having a positive impact on the quality of life for people who are diagnosed with a wide range of neurological conditions, for example, multifocal motor neuropathy, myasthenia gravis, and chronic pain.

"The number of potential clinical applications for immunoglobulin therapy continues to expand and recent research has identified several novel and promising uses that may be able to help people with debilitating and degenerative neurological conditions," said Jeffrey Baggish, M.D., Director of Medical Affairs, Immunology & Pulmonary at CSL Behring. "The Interlaken Leadership Awards further underpins CSL Behring's position at the forefront of immunoglobulin research by supporting investigators who are devoted to improving patient outcomes by advancing the evolving science behind Ig therapy."

Proposal Submission Process

Any individual actively engaged in clinical or basic research in a field of study consistent with the goals of the Interlaken Leadership Awards program is eligible.
