VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--$ACOG--Alpha Cognition Inc. (TSX-V: ACOG)(OTCQB: ACOGF)(“Alpha Cognition”, or the “Company”), a biopharmaceutical company committed to developing novel therapies with the potential to transform the lives of people with debilitating neurodegenerative disorders, today announced that the Company will participate in H.C. Wainwright 23rd Annual Global Investment Conference taking place virtually from September 13-15, 2021.
Michael McFadden, CEO of Alpha Cognition, will provide an overview of the Company's business, highlighting the Company’s lead asset, ALPHA-1062, as well as its early-stage asset, ALPHA-0602, during the presentation.
ALPHA-1062, is a patented new chemical entity that has demonstrated safety and improved tolerability in human clinical trials. It is being developed as a new generation acetylcholinesterase inhibitor for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, with minimal gastrointestinal side effects and novel routes of administration. ALPHA-1062's active metabolites are differentiated from donepezil and rivastigmine in that they may sensitize neuronal nicotinic receptors, most notably the alpha-7 subtype, which is known to have a positive effect on cognition. The Company expects to be able to submit a 505(b)(2) New Drug Application (NDA) for ALPHA-1062 as early as Q3 2022.
ALPHA-0602 (Progranulin) is expressed in several cell types in the central nervous system and in peripheral tissues, regulates cell survival and certain inflammatory processes, and plays a major role in regulating lysosomal function and microglial responses to disease. Its use for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases has been patented by the Company and granted an Orphan Drug Designation.
The Company will also join one-on-one meetings with institutional investors and private equity firms to seek investment opportunities.
The presentation video can be accessed at 7:00 AM EST on Monday, September 13, 2021. To register for the conference and view the presentation, or schedule a one-on-one meeting, please visit HCW Events.
