Annovis Bio A New Approach to Alzheimer’s Treatment
Annovis Bio (NYSE American: ANVS) is a clinical-stage, drug platform company addressing neurodegeneration, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Alzheimer’s in Down Syndrome (AD-DS). Annovis is believed to be the only company developing a drug for AD, PD and AD-DS that inhibits more than one neurotoxic protein and improves the information highway of the nerve cell, known as axonal transport. When this information flow is impaired, the nerve cell gets sick and dies. The company expects its treatment to improve memory loss and dementia associated with AD and AD-DS, as well as body and brain function in PD. Annovis has an ongoing Phase 2a study in AD patients and plans to commence a second Phase 2a study in PD patients.
