The study shows that treatment with ACD856 results in potent memory enhancement in preclinical studies.
  • On June 4, the company presented favorable data from the first clinical trial with ACD856, which showed that ACD856 has a good pharmacokinetic profile with a significantly shorter half-life in humans than its predecessor, ACD855, and that the candidate is suitable for further clinical development as an oral therapy for conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.

Significant events during the period July – September, 2020

  • During the quarter the company was represented and active in various events, including scientific symposiums focused on Alzheimer’s disease arranged with Professor Bengt Winblad at Karolinska Institutet, as well as professor Henrik Zetterberg, active at University College London in the UK and the University of Gothenburg.

About AlzeCure Pharma AB (publ)

AlzeCure® is a Swedish pharmaceutical company that develops new innovative drug therapies for the treatment of severe diseases and conditions that affect the central nervous system, such as Alzheimer’s disease and pain – indications for which currently available treatment is extremely limited.

NeuroRestore consists of three symptomatic drug candidates where the unique mechanism of action allows for multiple indications, including Alzheimer’s disease, as well as cognitive disorders associated with traumatic brain injury, sleep apnea and Parkinson’s disease. Alzstatin comprises two disease-modifying and preventive drug candidates for early treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Painless is the company’s research platform in the field of pain and contains two projects: ACD440, which is a clinical candidate for the treatment of neuropathic pain, and TrkA-NAM, which targets severe pain in conditions such as osteoarthritis. AlzeCure aims to pursue its own projects through preclinical research and development to an early clinical phase and is continuously working with business development to find suitable out-licensing solutions with other pharmaceutical companies.
