ProMIS Neurosciences Inc. (PMN:TSX; ARFXF:OTCQB) announced in a news release that at last week's Keystone Symposium on Neurodegenerative Diseases, it presented data that showed greater Alzheimer's disease treatment potential with the company's PMN310.
In her poster presentation, Chief Development Officer Dr. Johanne Kaplan highlighted that ProMIS' PMN310 shows superior selectivity for toxic amyloid beta oligomers in Alzheimer's brain samples and it neutralizes the neurotoxicity and propagation of those oligomers. Further, she showed that PMN310 can be safely given in high doses and, thus, achieve greater therapeutic potency than other amyloid beta-targeting antibodies.
"There was a general consensus for the need to selectively target the propagating forms of toxic proteins in pursuit of disease-modifying therapies. Our data on PMN310 were very well received," Kaplan said in the release.
In podcast Savings Minds' eighth episode, Kaplan expresses her thoughts about the most significant research reviewed at the conference. The podcast is available via Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
