Cognition Therapeutics Co-Founder and CSO Susan Catalano to Present at Sachs Neuroscience Innovation Forum(January 04, 2018)
Pittsburgh, Jan. 04, 2018 (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 Dr. Susan Catalano, Cognition’s co-founder and chief science officer, will make two presentations at the upcoming Sachs Associates Neuroscience Innovation Forum on January 7, 2018 at the Marine’s Memorial Club in San Francisco.
Dr. Catalano will be participating on a panel titled “Advances in Alzheimer’s and other Cognitive Disorders” at 10:25am PT, which will review advances in the understanding of Alzheimer’s disease, as well as novel therapeutic, diagnostic and biomarker tools in development. Additionally, Dr. Catalano will make a corporate presentation during which she will provide an update on Cognition’s disease-modifying drug candidate, CT1812. Dr. Catalano will review the CT1812 Phase 1b/2a clinical results that were announced at two late-breaking presentations at CTAD, and preview the clinical trials of CT1812 that are expected to commence during 2018. Dr. Catalano’s corporate presentation will take place at 3:20pm PT in The Heritage Room.

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 U.S. FDA. CT1812 is a highly brain penetrant molecule that acts as a selective sigma-2 receptor complex allosteric antagonist, displacing toxic beta amyloid (A?) oligomers from their binding sites on brain cells and clearing them into the cerebrospinal fluid. This compound has been shown in multiple Alzheimer’s disease models to stop memory loss. Results from Study COG0102 were reported at a late-breaker oral presentation at the Clinical Trials on Alzheimer's disease (CTAD) meeting in Boston in November 2017.
