Dementia Discovery Fund Collaborates with Immuneering to Discover New Alzheimer’s Therapies
The Dementia Discovery Fund (DDF) and Immuneering have formed a partnership to identify new therapy targets and candidates for Alzheimer’s disease. DDF will invest $1.3 million to use Immuneering’s proprietary computational drug discovery platform and analyze available public data of Alzheimer’s disease patients. Immuneering researchers use those methods along with drug discovery platforms that allow

    Biologics, e.g. antibodies, are nice to treat small populations of patients, like cancer and some autoimmune diseases. The problem is that AD is not small, since we are talking of millions; also, once the disease starts, it will be very dubious to cure it. Moreover, like those using biologics know well, their cost is astronomic; why? because they are costly to make as well as difficult to administer. Something that it is not going to change much with demand; for those that doubt, I recommend to look into the manufacturing of any biologic; it is quite different from classic organic synthesis. Finally, the myth that health care systems will pay whatever price is demanded, as any person with a 101 Economics knows, it is just a myth. Indeed, the HIV area, which for a while searched antibodies for potentially broad use, using that knowledge is developing new vaccines to mimic those antibodies. We should also remember that the Alzheimer’s disease vaccines, are all examples of how not to prepare a failing vaccine. Thus, using bad science as argument against good science is hopeless and will delay progress and end as it is supposed to end: in failure.
