The Amyloidosis Program at Penn Medicine is involved in the treatment and diagnosis of amyloidosis and the development of new drugs to treat the disease and its variants. Amyloidosis can have a variety of causes, and as a result, the Program brings together specialists from cardiology, nephrology, hematology-oncology, neurology, rheumatology, pulmonology and organ transplantation.

The Penn Amyloidosis Program is involved in the development of a promising new drug called NEOD001, which is designed to target and remove the buildup of amyloids in the heart and other affected organs. So far, the majority of patients in the study have seen stability or improvement in the blood tests that measure the impact of amyloidosis on the heart. The primary investigator for the NEOD001 study at Penn Medicine, Brendan Weiss, MD, director of the Penn Amyloidosis Program, is enthusiastic about the preliminary results.
