Alzheimer’s affects 150 million families

الزهايمر يؤثر على 150 مليون أسرة


FRANKFURT: Alzheimer’s drug developer AC Immune (ACIU.O) expects the number of families to be affected by the degenerative disease could nearly triple by 2050 to 150 million, its CEO said in an interview with a German magazine.

The company recently secured a multi-million investment from the main backers of German COVID-19 vaccine developer BioNTech (22UAy.DE) while acquiring a possible Parkinson’s disease vaccine.

AC Immune’s CEO Andrea Pfeifer, in an interview with German business magazine Wirtschaftswoche published in its online edition on Sunday, described Alzheimer’s, a non-curable disease the origin of which is not known, as “a slow pandemic rolling towards the world”. It currently affected 55 million families, she said.

Athos, the holding company of Andreas and Thomas Struengmann – anchor investors in BioNTech (22UAy.DE) – together with financing companies MIG and First Capital Partner jointly hold 12% of AC Immune following a deal concluded a few weeks ago, Pfeifer said. The planned investment was announced in July.

Athos and MIG were involved in founding BioNTech, which with partner Pfizer (PFE.N) developed the Western world’s most widely used COVID-19 vaccine, and they remain the main shareholders.

Pfeifer said having the Struengmann twins on board was a “blessing” for AC Immune.

“If anyone knows how vaccines can be commercialised, then it is the main investors in BioNTech,” she said.

AC Immune is working on several compounds for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, including vaccines.

The company has not yet launched a drug.

Other investors in AC Immune are Dietmar Hopp via his biotech-holding company Dievini with slightly above 20%, as well as institutional and other private investors, Pfeifer said.


فرانكفورت: قال أندريا فايفر الرئيس التنفيذي لشركة إيه.سي إميون، التي تطوّر دواءً لعلاج مرض الزهايمر: إنه من المتوقع أن يزيد عدد الأسر التي ستتأثر بالمرض إلى ثلاثة أمثال تقريبًا بحلول عام 2050، أي ما يصل إلى 150 مليونًا. حصلت الشركة في الفترة الأخيرة على استثمار بعدة ملايين من الداعمين الرئيسيين لشركة بيونتيك الألمانية، التي تنتج لقاحًا مضادًا ل»كوفيد-19»، في إطار سعيها للتوصّل إلى لقاح محتمل لمرض باركنسون. ووصف فايفر مرض الزهايمر، وهو مرض غير قابل للشفاء ولا يُعرف أصله، بأنه «جائحة تتفشى ببطء في أنحاء العالم».
