Cyclo Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: CYTH) (“Cyclo Therapeutics” or the “Company”), a clinical stage biotechnology company dedicated to developing life-changing medicines through science and innovation for patients and families living with diseases, today provided a business update and reiterated upcoming milestones.
“We are very pleased with our progress advancing our clinical programs evaluating Trappsol® Cyclo™ for the treatment of NPC and Alzheimer’s disease. Of note, plans for our Phase 2 Alzheimer’s disease study remain on track to enroll and dose patients before the end of this year. Additionally, we are advancing our TransportNPC™ study and continue to build momentum related to enrollment. In addition to advancing the NPC clinical study, our team continues to dedicate time and effort to engage with the global NPC community.

Niemann-Pick Disease Type C1 Development Program
The Company continues to advance enrollment in its ongoing pivotal Phase 3 study, TransportNPC™. The Phase 3 study intends to enroll at least 93 pediatric (age 3 years and older) and adult patients with NPC1 in at least 23 study centers in 9 countries. Eligible patients will be randomized 2:1 to receive either Trappsol® Cyclo™ or a placebo. Randomization will not be constrained based on patient age, nor will patient enrollment be gated by patient age. The study duration is 96 weeks and includes an interim analysis at 48 weeks.
Cyclo Therapeutics is committed to connecting with the global NPC community and helping to drive awareness of this rare disease. As part of those efforts, the Company will participate at the upcoming NPUK Annual Family Conference & Interactive Workshop on Niemann-Pick Disease being held October 6-7, 2022 in Wyboston Lakes, Bedfordshire. As part of the conference, there will be an overview of Cyclo Therapeutics’ Phase 3 global clinical program, TransportNPC™, and Professor Caroline Hastings, MD, Global Principal Investigator for the TransportNPC™ study will participate in a panel discussion.
NPUK is a charitable organization dedicated to making a positive difference to the lives of those affected by Niemann-Pick diseases. Its conference will bring together attendees from the UK and throughout Europe, including patients and families, clinicians, researchers and members of industry. Toni Mathieson, CEO of NPUK and Founding Member of International Niemann Pick Disease Alliance, commented: “I believe it is only through thoughtful collaboration among industry, advocacy organizations, patients and the medical community that we can bring safe and effective treatments to those living with NPC. Cyclo Therapeutics shares this goal and has been a valuable partner for many years. We are grateful for their ongoing commitment to our NPC community in the UK and around the world, and look forward to their participation in our conference.”
