Cortice Biosciences Announces Presentation of Results from Placebo-Controlled Phase 1 Clinical Trials Evaluating TPI 287 for Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Tauopathies
Cortice Biosciences announced today results from placebo-controlled, double-blinded Phase 1 studies evaluating TPI 287, a brain penetrable microtubule stabilizing agent, for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and corticobasal syndrome (CBS).
Researchers report they have discovered where the earliest signs of Alzheimer's may occur in the brain. Initial accumulation of Alzheimer's associated amyloid beta was discovered in an important functional network, the default mode network.
A new imaging system has allowed researchers to map whole brain distribution of senile plaques in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease. The technique could help propel Alzheimer's research and speed up the development of new treatments.
