The title of Dr. Chain's presentation is "Prefibrillar Tau Neoepitopes Offer Attractive Targets for Active and Passive Immunotherapy." His presentation will take place on May 21st at the Intercontinental Hotel in Boston from 10:15-11:30 AM (EDT), as part of the session entitled "Alzheimer's and Cognitive Disorders."   

"Intellect Neurosciences is at the forefront of Alzheimer's research, with a rich pipeline and intellectual property portfolio and licensed products in late-stage clinical development," said Dr. Chain.  "We embrace opportunities like this one and realize they are essential toward raising additional awareness of our technology, our work in developing ground-breaking treatments for Alzheimer's and other devastating neurodegenerative diseases."

About The Neurotech Investing and Partnering Conference

The Neurotech Investing and Partnering Conference is a global forum where investors, executives, entrepreneurs, scientists and others involved in the development of new treatments and diagnostics for the brain and nervous system come together to shape the future of their organization and the industry.  This market-defining conference features keynotes on the state of the neurotech industry, cutting edge company presentations, leading translational research projects and panel discussions on a comprehensive selection of neurotech topics.

About Intellect Neurosciences

Intellect Neurosciences, Inc., develops innovative approaches aimed at arresting or preventing Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases, with a specific focus on proteinopathies. Intellect's pipeline includes therapeutic vaccines, antibodies and neuroprotective antibody drug conjugates.

The company currently is developing products based on three platform technologies: ANTISENILIN® is Intellect's Alzheimer's beta amyloid monoclonal antibody platform technology, which underlies a product in Phase 3 clinical trials and is licensed to major pharmaceutical companies. ANTISENILIN also underlies IN-N01, a humanized monoclonal antibody being developed by the company as an antibody dug conjugate (ADC). IN-N01-OX2 is the first candidate to emerge from the company's CONJUMAB-A platform technology, which is based on a novel application of antibody drug conjugates in which the antibody is chemically conjugated to a small molecule (OX2) that has potent neuroprotective properties both as an antioxidant and inhibitor of protein aggregation. RECALL-VAX is a therapeutic vaccine technology that underlies three preclinical drug candidates, RV01 and RVO2, which target beta amyloid and delta tau protein, respectively, and RVO3, which is a combination of the two.

The company recently licensed OX1, a small molecule multimodal antioxidant, to ViroPharma, Inc. for Friedreich's Ataxia and other neurodegenerative diseases. For more information, please visit www.intellectns.com.
