TORONTO and CAMBRIDGE, MA, Aug. 29, 2018 /CNW/ - ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. (TSX: PMN; OTCQB: ARFXF), a biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of antibody therapeutics targeting toxic oligomers implicated in the development of neurodegenerative diseases, today announced it has issued a narrated overview of second quarter 2018 operational results.
"We continued to make significant progress on three main priorities in the second quarter of 2018", stated ProMIS Executive Chairman, Eugene Williams. "First, to maintain PMN310 on track for clinical trial start in the second half of 2019 with initiation of cell line development supporting product manufacturing; second, to differentiate the oligomer selectivity of PMN310 as best in class profile for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD) versus other, less selective amyloid-beta (Ab) directed therapies in development; and third, to expand our portfolio by developing therapeutic antibodies targeting toxic oligomers of alpha-synuclein for Parkinson's disease (PD) and toxic aggregates of Tar-DNA binding protein (TDP43) for ALS, with a view to partnering these assets."
