Patients
We are committed to improving the lives of patients, their families and caregivers.

Impact
We aim to develop breakthrough therapies that can change the lives of patients with neurodegenerative disorders.

Our Approach

Our Precision Medicine Approach in Alzheimer’s

Right Patients:  APOE4/4 early to mild Alzheimer’s

  • Homogeneous population overexpressing amyloid pathology
  • Focus on early to mild Alzheimer’s where amyloid oligomers play key role in disease progression 


Right Drug:
 
Improved ALZ-801 oral prodrug formulation

  • Consistent plasma levels provide for high brain penetration for amyloid oligomer inhibition
  • Improved oral absorption & GI tolerability
  • No vasogenic brain edema in tramiprosate clinical trials 


Right Trial: 
Phase 2b trial to confirm clinical efficacy in APOE4/4 Alzheimer’s disease patients

  • Phase 3 program authorized by FDA with validated cognitive & functional measures
  • Well tolerated, long-term safety evaluated in 2,000 patients at effective clinical dose
  • FDA agreed to use tramiprosate safety data for ALZ-801 NDA submission
  • Fast Track designation granted for ALZ-801 Alzheimer’s program

For Patients and Caregivers

We are not yet enrolling patients in our Phase 2b clinical trial with ALZ-801.

Please check back as we will update our website when we are ready to start our clinical trial.
