It's the unrelated species thing that gets me worried. Especially when crossing the blood brain barier is a goal.<br><br><br>
{Ablynx is investigating other nanobodies which could be used in the treatment of neurological disease.<br><br>
The have carried out laboratory experiments which showed one nanobody binds to the protein which causes deposits, or plaques, to form in the brains of Alzheimer's patients.<br><br>
"We hope we will show that it is possible to disrupt plaque development, or formation."<br><br>
Clive Ballard, of the UK's Alzheimer's Society, said: "There has been a lot of interest in antibody approaches, and this new development might be something that will provide further opportunities to look at novel antibody therapies."<br><br>
But he added: "The researchers don't look at the potential immune response. That would be the concern." }

I had to find an excuse to post the Llama song. Fancy that I would find an actual news story pertaining to llamas. I recently visited a llama farm. They are really cool and kinda goofy at the same time. I think it's the head shape and long neck. Darn it! That's me!
