Hoth Therapeutics Announces Increased Positive Results of its Alzheimer's Therapeutic HT-ALZ
HT-ALZ Therapeutic Shows Cognitive Improvements in Alzheimer's Disease Mouse Model and
Results Show Reduced Anxiety and Improved Performance
NEW YORK, Feb. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Hoth Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:HOTH), a patient-focused biopharmaceutical company, today announced proof-of-concept data generated using cognitive and behavioral assessments in an Alzheimer's disease mouse model (aged APP/PS1+/- mice), supporting the therapeutic cognitive potential of HT-ALZ after chronic oral dosing of 20mg/kg and 40mg/kg of HT-ALZ The research was conducted as part of the company's Sponsored Research Agreement with Washington University in St. Louis. HT-ALZ is a therapeutic in development under the 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway for the treatment of dementia related to Alzheimer's disease (AD).
Hoth reports that the longer treatment before beginning of testing is improving performance of more mice in the water maze and appears to have a positive effect on anxiety-like behavior in the elevated plus maze. The groups of mice treated with the higher doses, 20mg/kg and 40mg/kg of HT-ALZ, appear to have the most benefit, with the 20mg group already showing significant improvement in spatial memory in the water maze. The elevated plus maze test is one of the most widely used tests for measuring anxiety-like behavior. The test is based on the natural aversion of mice for open and elevated areas, as well as on their natural spontaneous exploratory behavior in novel environments.
AD is a neurodegenerative disease that is characterized by aggregates of amyloid β (Aβ) plaques and neurofibrillary tangles of Tau protein in the brain, which contribute to the clinical symptoms of the disease such as dementia. Previously Hoth reported study results focused on investigating the effect of orally administered HT-ALZ to reduce the concentration of Aβ in the brain interstitial fluid, using an established Alzheimer's Disease mouse model (aged APP/PS1+/- mice). The initial data from those studies showed a significant decrease in Aβ in both male and female APP/PS1+/- mice after acute treatment with HT-ALZ, compared to placebo-treated animals and baseline Aβ levels.
