Alkahest’s partnership with Grifols

In March of 2015 we entered into a strategic partnership with Grifols, in which Grifols made a major equity investment in Alkahest and we agreed to work together to develop novel plasma-based products for the treatment of cognitive decline in aging and disorders of the central nervous system, including Alzheimer’s Disease.  Grifols, established in 1940, operates in more than 100 countries worldwide, employs more than 14,000 employees, and is a leader in the development and production of plasma-derived medicines. Through our collaboration with Grifols, Alkahest benefits from Grifols’ expertise and capabilities for plasma collection, testing and processing. To read the press release, click here.
