National Multiple Sclerosis Society Key Developments

Alzheimers Drug Discovery Foundation, Beyond Batten Disease Foundation and National Multiple Sclerosis Society Collaborate to Fund Repository of Promising CNS-Active Compounds

Alzheimers Drug Discovery Foundation, Beyond Batten Disease Foundation and National Multiple Sclerosis Society announced a funding collaboration to support the creation of the Collaborative CNS Screening Initiative (CCSI), a central repository of chemical compounds that have shown significant Central Nervous System (CNS) activity. Led by the Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center's Laboratory for Drug Discovery in Neurodegeneration (LDDN), at Brigham and Women's Hospital, the CCSI will share emerging compounds with the potential to treat diseases of the CNS among academic CNS drug discovery centers to maximize their potential and accelerate drug discovery efforts within the neuroscience community. Through the CCSI, screening and early-stage drug discovery centers will submit anonymous CNS-active compounds to a highly selective, shared library. Eligible compounds must have not only demonstrated potential through primary screens but be validated through secondary assays, and exhibit other promising characteristics such as benefiting from chemical optimization. The CCSI library will be made available to participating centers to include in their ongoing screening, which will increase the exposure of the shared compounds to a wide range of assays, diseases and conditions to identify beneficial activities. Centers that discover novel activity will be connected with the contributing center to discuss further drug development of the compound.
