Live Interview to Air March 21st 2015 Hosted by Michael Yorba, 2:30pm ET/11:30am PT/1:30pm CT
BRIDGEWATER, NJ--(Marketwired - Mar 20, 2015) - Neurotez, Inc., a private corporation whose primary goal is to develop a Leptin product as a novel hormone replacement therapy for Alzheimer's disease (AD), announced today that its President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Nikolaos Tezapsidis, will be interviewed live on Saturday, March 21, 2015 at 2:30pm ET by host Michael Yorba on Clear Channel -- iHeart Business Talk Radio's "The Trader's Network Show." In this exclusive interview, Dr. Tezapsidis will discuss how a wide spectrum of preclinical findings, in addition to observational human studies and anecdotal interventional clinical studies strongly support the likelihood that Leptin augmentation will effectively slow or stop the progression of AD and may even preclude or delay the onset of cognitive decline in pre-impairment individuals, particularly for a well-defined subset.

About Neurotez, Inc.
Neurotez, Inc. is a private corporation whose primary goal is to develop a Leptin product as a novel hormone replacement therapy for Alzheimer's disease (AD) and/or as a preventative for those who are at risk. Leptin, a naturally occurring human hormone associated with various metabolic effects, has a large number of receptors in memory centers of the brain. This protein is often present at decreased levels in patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease, and cognitive deterioration in AD patients correlates strongly with a decline in circulating Leptin levels. The administration of Leptin inhibits both the production of amyloid beta (Aβ) and also the phosphorylation of tau protein in a variety of in vitro and in vivo systems. Since Aβ and phospho-tau are widely viewed as two of the key factors in Alzheimer's disease etiology, Leptin represents a highly attractive, multi-functional therapeutic approach. Perhaps most tellingly, Neurotez has demonstrated that the administration of Leptin significantly improves cognition across a variety of measures in transgenic mouse models of AD. Thus, a wide spectrum of preclinical findings along with the human studies strongly support the likelihood that Leptin augmentation will effectively slow or stop the progression of AD and may even preclude or delay the onset of cognitive decline in pre-impairment individuals.
