Sharon Cohen, AAN 2022: Long-term safety and efficacy of aducanumab in Alzheimer’s disease – Baseline EMBARK data from EMERGE, ENGAGE, and PRIME

Published Online: April 27th 2022

Aducanumab is a human monoclonal antibody targeting soluble and insoluble amyloid beta (Aβ) aggregates. Aducanumab was approved in June 2021 for the treatment of mild cognitive impairment due to Alzheimer’s disease or mild dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease by the FDA under the accelerated approval pathway.

Dr Sharon Cohen (Toronto Memory Program, Toronto, Canada) discusses the EMBARK redosing study, an open-label study assessing the long-term safety and efficacy of aducanumab over 24 months in participants with Alzheimer’s disease who were enrolled in aducanumab clinical trials named PRIME/EVOLVE/EMERGE/ENGAGE.

The abstract entitled ‘Baseline EMBARK Data From EMERGE, ENGAGE, and PRIME Participants in the EMBARK Redosing Study’ was presented at the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) annual meeting, April 2-7, 2022.
