KineMed biopharma partners with Amgen, a big pharma company, to apply KineMed’s mass spectrometric Dynamic Proteomics platform to the study of brain protein homeostasis linked to neurodegenerative diseases.
KineMed’s biomarker platform will allow Amgen to track synthesis and clearance rates of pathogenic proteins in the brain that drive neurodegeneration.
Neurodegenerative disease is a significant health burden worldwide with few effective treatment options available to patients; according to the Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center, without the development of new treatments, in 30 years’ time more than 12 million Americans may be suffering from some form of neurodegenerative disease.
The growing number of patients underscores the urgent need to build new tools to guide and accelerate the development of effective treatments for neurodegenerative disease.
