Dive into a study that investigated combining aducanumab and focused ultrasound to open the blood-brain barrier in patients with Alzheimer's disease.

  • Overview

    A recent phase 1 study investigated the safety and feasibility of combining focused ultrasound and aducanumab, which is a monoclonal antibody for amyloid, to open the blood-brain barrier in patients with Alzheimer's disease. And what the researchers found was about a 50 percent overall reduction of cerebral amyloid-beta load in the target areas compared to the untreated areas. Dive further into these findings and next steps in this line of research that may impact the way we treat Alzheimer’s disease with Dr. Andrew Wilner and Dr. Marc Haut, Director of the Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute’s Memory Health Clinic at West Virginia University.
