For the fireside chat, N. Scott Fine, Chief Executive Officer, and Lise Lund Kjems, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer of Cyclo Therapeutics will be joined by Alzheimer’s Disease Key Opinion Leader, Cynthia A. Lemere, PhD.
Dr. Lemere is a preeminent neuroscientist, world-renowned researcher, and recently appointed as Senior Advisor for advancement of Cyclo Therapeutics’ Alzheimer’s disease asset.
As part of the event, Cyclo Therapeutics will discuss its development program of Trappsol® Cyclo™ for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. The Company recently received clearance of its investigational new drug (“IND”) application from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to proceed with its Phase 2 study of Trappsol® Cyclo™ for the treatment of early Alzheimer’s disease.
Trappsol® Cyclo™ is the Company’s proprietary formulation of hydroxypropyl beta cyclodextrin, and in multiple clinical studies, has shown encouraging results to effectively manage the transportation of cholesterol. Many of the known risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease are associated with cholesterol metabolism. Cholesterol imbalance in Alzheimer’s patients is well known, and significant research exists, suggesting these imbalances are responsible for amyloid beta (Aβ) and tau accumulation. Furthermore, neurons, because of their high metabolic demands, experience an increased level of oxidative stress. Oxidative stress has also been linked to abnormal cholesterol accumulation and processing.
A live video webcast of the spotlight event will be available on the Events page of the Investors section of the Company’s website (cyclotherapeutics.com). A webcast replay will be available two hours following the live presentation and will be accessible for 90 days.
