The present invention relates to methods for modulating the activity of one or more Vps10p-domain receptors selected from the group consisting of Sortilin, SorLA, SorCS1, SorCS2 and SorCS3, in an animal and methods for preparation of a medicament for the treatment of mental and behavioural disorders. The modulation is carried out by inhibiting or promoting the binding of ligands to the Vps10p-domain receptor. In vitro and in vivo methods for screening for agents capable of modulation of said Vps10p-domain receptor activity are also provided. The invention furthermore relates to methods of altering expression of said receptors in vivo.

COSYN integrates outstanding European academic and three large Pharma to exploit genomic findings for intellectual disability (ID), autism, and schizophrenia. We capitalise on comorbidity, from clinic to cells and synapses, and have access to large existing samples. We focus on rare genetic variants of strong effect in patients with clinical comorbidity. Our aims are: (1) Understand comorbidity by comparing symptom and syndrome overlap with novel neurobiological criteria; (2) Elucidate mechanisms of comorbidity using neurobiology for the major genomic clue of synaptic dysfunction to unravel the cellular mechanisms of comorbidity; (3) Generate novel neuronal cell models by using advanced technologies to make neurons from carefully selected patients, and use genome editing to create or correct genetic variants. Multiple advanced neuroscience platforms are in place to evaluate an extensive set of molecular and cellular parameters, and to identify alterations in synaptic biology characteristic of ID, autism, and schizophrenia. These cellular models will, with Pharma partners, be up-scaled to provide industry-standard cellular assays for compound screening; (4) Refine diagnostic tools, use novel genomic and cellular features to improve disease classification and discriminate specific patient subtypes; and (5) Case studies in precision medicine: with Pharma partners, identify patients with a genetic change whose consequences can be reproducibly ameliorated in vitro by an approved medication. Recommend to the patient and clinician a double-blinded, N-of-one crossover case study to evaluate the clinical utility of a medication precisely indicated for that person. COSYN is an integrated, state-of-art, bench-to-bedside programme focused on personalised therapeutics. COSYN is a crucial next step in decoding the genetic findings via intensive focus on the clinical and molecular comorbidities of ID, autism, and schizophrenia.
TreatER - Clinical study in Parkinsons disease with two unique goals: 1) Proof-of-concept of CDNF protein for disease modification; 2) Validation of clinically tested device for intracerebral drug delivery
Agency: European Commission | Branch: H2020 | Program: RIA | Phase: SC1-PM-09-2016 | Award Amount: 8.71M | Year: 2017
The main focus of TreatER is conducting a randomized, placebo-controlled, first-in-human, proof-of-concept, safety and efficacy study of intracerebrally administered CDNF protein therapy in patients with Parkinsons disease (PD), using a neurosurgically implanted Drug Delivery System (DDS), which will also be clinically validated in the study. Thus the TreatER project has two independent goals, either of which alone can have significant impact addressing unmet clinical needs in chronic diseases, and advancing innovative European technologies: 1) Proof-of-concept of CDNF protein therapy for disease modification in PD. The patented European innovation CDNF has further potential in other ER stress related indications. 2) Clinical validation of DDS, an already clinically tested approach for accurately targeted intracerebral infusions in PD. The patented European innovation DDS has also significant potential in other indications needing intracerebral infusions. The clinical study builds on extensive preclinical research and related data on CDNF, including completed acute and chronic toxicology studies in non-human primates supporting an excellent safety profile. Further, the clinical study builds on existing clinical experience on DDS and related neurosurgery. Both conventional and novel means for assessing the efficacy of the treatment will be utilized. This requires strong interdisciplinary expertise and knowledge available in the consortium, including: Regulatory expertise in drug and medical device development; neurological and neurosurgical expertise in PD; PET imaging expertise specific to PD; Scientific expertise in novel neurotrophic factors, in specific CDNF; and GMP manufacturing expertise of novel biological drug compounds. Clinical trial applications are currently being submitted in Finland and Sweden, in accordance with previously obtained scientific advice from regulatory authorities in those countries as well as from MHRA (UK) and EMAs ITF.
