B.Business overview

 

We are a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on neurodegenerative diseases with five product candidates in clinical trials. We leverage our two proprietary technology platforms to discover, design and develop novel, proprietary small molecules, antibodies and vaccines for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases associated with protein misfolding. Misfolded proteins are generally recognized as the leading cause of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, or AD, and Parkinson’s disease, or PD, with common mechanisms and drug targets, such as Abeta, Tau, alpha-synuclein and Tar DNA-binding Protein (TDP-43). We believe that our large and diverse pipeline of nine therapeutic candidates and three diagnostic candidates has the potential to drive a paradigm shift in the treatment of a broad spectrum of neurodegenerative and other diseases related to protein misfolding.
