What is the best approach for treating Alzheimer's disease? Aducanumab is an amyloid beta-directed monoclonal antibody that targets the aggregated forms of amyloid beta found in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease. In May, Dr. Niklas Mattsson-Carlgren and Dr. Ruben Smith entertained young MultiParkers by debating the pros and cons of using it.

Last summer, Aducanumab was approved by the FDA as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease. The young MultiParker's working group arranged a scientific debate where Dr. Niklas Mattsson-Carlgren and Dr. Ruben Smith, two of MultiPark's senior researchers, discussed the topic. 

Watch the recorded version of the debate below.
