CTAD 2023 | Phase II trial of ACU193 in Alzheimer’s disease

Following promising results from the Phase I INTERCEPT-AD trial (NCT04931459), Eric Siemers, MD, Acumen Pharmaceuticals Inc., Charlottesville, VA, outlines plans for an upcoming Phase II/III trial to further investigate the safety and efficacy of ACU193 in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or mild Alzheimer’s disease (AD). ACU193 is a monoclonal antibody that selectively binds Aβ oligomers, hypothesized to be highly neurotoxic in AD. Commencing in 2024, the 18-month trial will assess two doses of ACU193 (35mg/kg and 50mg/kg), guided by target engagement and plaque reduction levels identified in INTERCEPT-AD, as compared to placebo. An interim analysis will determine the potential transition from a Phase II to a Phase III design. This interview took place at the CTAD 2023 conference in Boston, MA.
