Cassava Sciences reported initiation of a Phase 2b study of its lead drug candidate, PTI-125, in Alzheimer's patients. PTI-125 is a small molecule that targets the massive neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration observed in the Alzheimer's brain. In conjunction with the initiation of this Phase 2b study, Cassava Sciences also reported dosing of the first two patients for this study, both of which were uneventful. This Phase 2b study is supported by a research grant award from the National Institutes of Health. Initiation of the Phase 2b study follows results reported from a Phase 2a study, demonstrating 100% responder rate and statistically significant decreases in key biomarkers of Alzheimer's pathology, neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration.
