Abstract: Clearance of plasma amyloid-β (Aβ) through plasma exchange and replacement with therapeutic albumin to facilitate net Aβ efflux from the brain to plasma is a novel approach for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. Therefore, thorough characterization of the capacity of therapeutic albumin to bind Aβ is warranted. In this study, Aβ40 and Aβ42 were quantified by commercial ELISA or Araclon ABtest® in samples of Grifols' therapeutic albumin (Albutein®) 5%, 20%, and 25%. The capacity of Albutein® to bind Aβ was a…
