July 13, 2022 12:00 UTC

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cognito Therapeutics, a pioneer in developing disease-modifying therapeutic interventions for neurodegenerative diseases, today announced the acceptance of two research abstracts and an oral presentation at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference® 2022 (AAIC®). The largest international meeting dedicated to advancing dementia science, AAIC will be held as an online and in-person event in San Diego, July 31- August 4, 2022.

“We’re excited to present our recent findings at AAIC which shows that 40Hz gamma sensory stimulation therapy for a 6-month period may reduce white matter atrophy, protect axons, and possibly prevent myelin and oligodendrocyte damage in Alzheimer’s patients,” said Brent Vaughan, Chief Executive Officer, Cognito Therapeutics. “Given the crucial role of white matter connecting expansive brain regions, preventing or reducing its atrophy may diminish disease progression. We look forward to sharing our results indicating that our therapy can potentially improve outcomes for patients with Alzheimer’s and Mild Cognitive Impairment, as well as other neuro-degenerative diseases that involve loss of white matter and myelination.”

Details of the presentations are as follows:
