Whitepaper: In search of a disease-modifying agent for Parkinson’s disease: a discovery story

Posted: 21 November 2017 | | No comments yet

Are selective, brain-penetrant inhibitors of LRRK2 an answer?

Parkinson’s disease afflicts an estimated 6.3 million people globally, and there is currently no disease-modifying therapy that halts the progression of the disease.

Genentech partnered with Charles River Laboratories to research the possibility of using leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) inhibitors as therapeutic agents for the treatment of autosomal-dominant Parkinson’s disease.

This report summarises the exhaustive research process used to identify, optimise and test the safety of a compound that showed promise in inhibiting phosphorylated LRRK2 in the brain.
