Company to deliver two presentations at AD/PD 2021

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Jan. 28, 2021 – Pinteon Therapeutics, a biotechnology company focused on protecting neuronal health by targeting neurotoxic forms of tau, today announced it will present new data at two upcoming virtual scientific meetings: CurePSP 2021 International Research Symposium and the 15th International Conference on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases (AD/PD 2021).

“We are excited to share new preclinical and clinical data from PNT001, which targets a highly neurotoxic conformation of tau observed in several different diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and traumatic brain injury (TBI),” said Martin Jefson, Ph.D., Pinteon’s chief executive officer. “Our goal is to limit the acute neurotoxic effects in TBI and CTE and halt the spread of pathologic tau in all tauopathies. As part of this goal, we are committed to working together with the research community and look forward to sharing our findings at the upcoming CurePSP and AD/PD meetings.”

At the CurePSP International Research Symposium, taking place Feb. 4-5, 2021, Michael Ahlijanian, Ph.D., Pinteon’s chief scientific officer, will present preclinical and clinical data from PNT001, the company’s novel tau antibody that targets a potent driver of neurodegenerative disease. This symposium brings together leaders from academia and industry to highlight the latest advances in neurodegeneration.

The company will also deliver one oral presentation and one poster presentation at AD/PD 2021, taking place March 9-14, 2021. The presentations will include preclinical and non-clinical data using clinical tauopathy samples, as well as results of the Phase 1 study of PNT001 in healthy volunteers.
