ALZ-801 for Alzheimer’s

ALZ-801 is an oral small molecule inhibitor of beta amyloid misfolding and the consequent formation of small neurotoxic aggregates, or oligomers. ALZ-801 is Phase 3-ready for Alzheimer’s disease patients with the highest Aβ oligomer burden. In October 2017, the FDA designated ALZ-801 as a Fast Track development program for the investigation of AD and we intend to commence a Phase 3 trial for ALZ-801 in APOE4/4 homozygous patients with mild AD in 2018.

Other Programs

We have an extensive proprietary library of compounds designed to inhibit the misfolding of Aß and other proteins associated with neurodegenerative diseases. We are investigating the next generation of protein misfolding inhibitors and intend to progress one or more of these compounds.
