He will also present supportive data from a study of the drug in a preclinical animal model of the disease.
The AAN annual meeting is the world’s largest international congress of neurologists and neuroscience professionals.
The title, timing and location of Professor Haq’s presentation are:

AIMSPRO® (Hyperimmune Caprine Sera, HICS) is a proprietary, purified, protein–multi-peptide conjugate complex being developed as a novel, first-in-class biological treatment for a number of immune diseases where regulation and stabilisation of the immune system is required. It is believed that the drug has a unique mechanism of action that supports its broad potential application in neuro-degenerative diseases. AIMSPRO has been granted a Specials License by the UK's MHRA and is also available in Australia under Categories A and B of the TGA's Special Access Scheme.
