Pittsburgh, Nov. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cognition Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical stage neuroscience company focused on the development of innovative therapeutics for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurocognitive disorders, today announced that President & CEO Kenneth I. Moch will present at the Stifel 2017 Healthcare Conference at 8:45 a.m. on November 15, 2017 at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel.
Mr. Moch’s presentation will include a corporate update as well as summary of results from the company’s Phase 1b/2a study of CT1812 in patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease. These results, which were recently presented at the annual Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease (CTAD) conference, showed that CT1812 was well tolerated and generated a differential change compared to placebo in the levels of several key cerebrospinal fluid proteins that are dysregulated in Alzheimer’s disease.
Cognition’s lead product candidate, CT1812, has completed a Phase 1b/2a clinical study (COG0102) in patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease and has been granted Fast Track designation by the US FDA. This highly brain penetrant compound targets the sigma-2 receptor complex on neuronal synapses, displacing toxic beta amyloid (Aβ) oligomers from their binding sites on brain cells and clearing them into the cerebrospinal fluid. CT1812 has been shown in multiple Alzheimer’s disease models to stop memory loss. Study COG0102 was supported in part under Award Number RF1AG054176 from The National Institute on Aging of the National Institutes of Health.
