ProMIS Neurosciences presents educational webcast that will outline recent progress in understanding origins of Alzheimer's disease on Thursday, October 29, 2015 at 11:00 AM Eastern Time
TORONTO, Oct. 27, 2015 /CNW/ - ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. (TSX: PMN), announced today that it will be holding a live webcast entitled "Alzheimer's, Light at the End of the Tunnel" on Thursday, Oct. 29th, at 11:00 AM Eastern Time. The thirty minute webcast will include a 15 minute video/slide presentation followed by a 15 minute Question and Answer session with ProMIS Neurosciences senior management team.
This educational webcast will outline exciting recent progress in understanding the origins of Alzheimer's disease. In particular, the presentation will focus on the recent evidence and growing consensus in the scientific community highlighting the role played by toxic, propagating strains of misfolded proteins beta amyloid and tau in the development of Alzheimer's. Identification of these propagating, misfolded proteins (prions) opens the door to achieving early diagnosis and effective treatment via development of strain specific therapeutic antibodies and related companion diagnostics.
To access the live webcast on Thurs., Oct. 29th, participants should go to the following link and register as a guest: https://join.onstreammedia.com/go/[email protected]/alzheimers. For those unable to join the live webcast, the recorded video/slide presentation can be accessed after the webcast via the following link: https://vimeo.com/user45047273.
About ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc.
The mission of ProMIS Neurosciences is to discover and develop precision medicine solutions for the early detection and effective treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Alzheimer's disease and ALS.
ProMIS uses its computational discovery platform— ProMIS™ --to predict novel targets known as Disease Specific Epitopes (DSEs) on the molecular surface of misfolded proteins. Using this unique "precision medicine" approach, ProMIS Neurosciences is developing novel antibody therapeutics and specific companion diagnostics for Alzheimer's disease and ALS. The company has developed two proprietary technologies to specifically identify very low levels of misfolded proteins in a biological sample. In addition, ProMIS Neurosciences owns the exclusive rights to the genus patent relating to misfolded SOD1 in ALS, and currently has a preclinical monoclonal antibody therapeutic against this target.
