"Findings from these presentations add to the growing body of research supporting our hypothesis that factors in the plasma proteome can play an important modulatory role in neurodegenerative diseases, particularly cognitive dysfunction and neurodegeneration. This presents an entirely new opportunity for therapeutic interventions," said Steven Braithwaite, Ph.D., chief scientific officer of Alkahest.

About AlkahestAlkahest is a privately-held clinical-stage company based in the San Francisco Bay Area developing treatments for age-related diseases, with an emphasis on neurodegeneration — a key medical challenge for our generation. The company's breakthrough research has elucidated changes in the plasma proteome in healthy aging and age-related diseases, and demonstrated that factors in the blood plasma can be augmented or inhibited in order to reverse detrimental effects of aging in both normal aging and disease models in animals. Alkahest is developing novel plasma-based therapies in collaboration with Barcelona, Spain-based Grifols, a global healthcare company and leading producer of plasma therapies.
