Biotechnology company ProMIS Neurosciences (PMN) will present data which supports their Alzheimer’s Disease program at the Tau2020 Global Conference.

The event will be hosted at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Washington D.C., on February 12th and 13th.

The international conference will bring together academics, industry leaders, sponsors, and scientists from around the world. They will share and discuss the latest advances in tau research and neurodegenerative issues.

ProMIS’s Chief Development Officer, Dr Johanne Kaplan, will present data at the conference, and discuss the company’s program to target neurotoxic tau.

Dr Kaplan will also demonstrate the antibody candidates’ abilities, which were produced using ProMIS’s drug discovery and development platform.

The antibodies, which can bind and neutralise the seeding activity of toxic tau species, show great potential for use in future Alzheimer’s therapy and treatment.

ProMIS’s drug discovery and development platform has already produced high-quality, precisely selective antibody candidates.

Dr Kaplan commented, “We created ProMIS to discover and advance new antibody candidates that can selectively target the toxic forms of misfolded proteins, including amyloid and tau, for potential therapies for a range of neurodegenerative diseases.”

“We’re pleased to share our findings for tau with the larger community and to have our data recognised by such an accomplished program committee.”

ProMIS’ share price is up 4.76 per cent, with shares trading at $0.22 apiece.
