BARCELONA, Spain, Dec. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Grifols (MCE: GRF, MCE: GRF.P, NASDAQ: GRFS), a leading global producer of plasma-derived medicines, will present the final and complete clinical, biomarker and neuroimaging results of its AMBAR (Alzheimer Management by Albumin Replacement) clinical trial at the Clinical Trials on Alzheimer's Disease (CTAD) Conference in San Diego, Calif. (USA).
The results will be presented on December 6, 2019, at 11 a.m. (PST) by Dr. Antonio Páez, M.D. (Director of Grifols AMBAR Clinical Research), with the collaboration of Dr. Zbigniew M.

AMBAR is a phase IIb/III international, multicenter, randomized blinded and placebo controlled, parallel group clinical trial that enrolled 496 patients with mild and moderate Alzheimer's from 41 treatment centers in Spain and the United States. The study was designed to evaluate whether the progression of Alzheimer's disease could be stabilized through plasma exchange, a process that entails periodically extracting plasma and replacing it with a specific albumin solution (Albutein®) and intravenous immunoglobulin (Flebogamma DIF®).
