|20130330837||MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES THAT TARGET PATHOLOGICAL ASSEMBLIES OF AMYLOID BETA (ABETA) - Disclosed herein are antibodies that bind with high specificity to soluble oligomers of amyloid β (Abeta) and methods utilizing such antibodies. The antibodies are able to distinguish between Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and control human brain extracts. The antibodies identify endogenous Abeta oligomers in AD brain slices and also bind to Abeta oligomers on cultured hippocampal cells. The antibodies neutralize endogenous Abeta oligomers and Abeta oligomers produced in solution.||12-12-2013|
|20130130288||Antibodies, Kit and Method for Detecting Amyloid Beta Oligomers - This invention is a selective Aβ oligomer kit and immunoassay method capable of reliably and sensitively detecting Aβ oligomers in a biological sample of a patient. In one embodiment the inventive assay uses a pair of anti-Aβ oligomer antibodies, as capture and detection antibodies, to detect and quantify Aβ oligomers. The method can be used to differentiate Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients from non-AD patients and/or to stratify AD patients according to the severity of their disease.||05-23-2013|
|20130089537||METHOD FOR TREATING A DISEASE ASSOCIATED WITH SOLUBLE, OLIGOMERIC SPECIES OF AMYLOID BETA 1-42 - This invention is a method and kit for treating a disease associated with, or resulting from, the accumulation of soluble oligomer amyloid beta 1-42 using an antibody, or antibody fragment thereof, that has a higher affinity for amyloid beta 1-42 oligomers than for amyloid beta 1-42 monomer, amyloid beta 1-40 monomer, plaques and amyloid beta fibrils and, optionally, a tau therapeutic or an inhibitor of amyloid beta production or aggregation.||04-11-2013|
|20130078269||AMYLOID BETA PEPTIDES, ASSEMBLIES THEREOF, AND RELATED METHODS - The present invention provides amyloid β peptide assemblies composed of at least three amyloid β peptide subunits, wherein at least one of the amyloid β peptide subunits is an amyloid β peptide analog. The invention further relates to metal complexes of amyloid β peptide assemblies and the use of amyloid β peptide assemblies as vaccines and in the identification of agents that modulate assembly of the amyloid β peptide subunits.||03-28-2013|
|20110098309||METHODS OF INHIBITING THE FORMATION OF AMYLOID-BETA DIFFUSABLE LIGANDS USING ACYLHYDRAZIDE COMPOUNDS - Disclosed are methods of inhibiting, regulating, and/or modulating the formation of soluble, globular, non-fibrillar, neurotoxic amyloid β1-42 oligomers from amyloid β1-42 monomers using acylhydrazide compounds. Also disclosed are methods of treating a patient suffering from diseases associated with the formation of soluble, globular, non-fibrillar, neurotoxic amyloid β1-42 oligomers using acylhydrazide compounds.||04-28-2011|
