PURCHASE, N.Y., Nov. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cognition Therapeutics, Inc., (Nasdaq: CGTX), (the “Company” or “Cognition”) has introduced a new podcast/webinar series named “Conversations,” that will feature virtual fireside chats with neuroscience experts to discuss advances in the research and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), and other age-related neurodegenerative conditions.
Episode 1: Dementia with Lewy Bodies, Unmet Need and Research Landscape, features James Galvin, M.D., MPH, the director of the Comprehensive Center for Brain Health at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and principal investigator of Cognition’s ongoing SHIMMER clinical trial of CT1812 in DLB, and is moderated by Anthony Caggiano, M.D., Ph.D., Cognition’s chief medical officer and head of R&D.
Discussion topics for this episode include the epidemiology of DLB, the importance of making an accurate diagnosis considering that symptoms can easily be confused with other diseases, as well as advances in our understanding of the underlying biology and finally ongoing clinical research trials.
According to the Lewy Body Dementia Association, DLB affects an estimated 1.4 million individuals in the U.S. alone and is the second most common form of degenerative dementia. With the generous support of the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Aging (NIA) in non-dilutive grant support, Cognition’s Phase 2 SHIMMER trial is actively recruiting with over two thirds of sites activated and more expected to open. Visit our SHIMMER DLB Study website if you would like to learn more for your family and loved ones.
Cognition Therapeutics invites researchers to listen in on this and future Conversations at www.cogrx.com/conversations and learn more about “the most common dementia, no one has heard of.”
We would love to hear your feedback and welcome you to submit your questions and comments using the form at the bottom of our webpage.
About Cognition Therapeutics
Cognition Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of innovative, small molecule therapeutics targeting age-related degenerative disorders of the central nervous system and retina. We are currently investigating our lead candidate CT1812 in clinical programs in Alzheimer’s disease, dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and dry age-related macular degeneration (dry AMD). We believe CT1812 and our pipeline of σ-2 receptor modulators can regulate pathways that are impaired in these diseases. We believe that targeting the σ-2 receptor with CT1812 represents a mechanism functionally distinct from other current approaches in clinical development for the treatment of degenerative diseases.
