Cognito Therapeutics to Present Clinical Data Evaluating Gamma Frequency Neuromodulation in Alzheimer’s Disease at 2022 CTAD Conference


CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cognito Therapeutics, a clinical-stage company pioneering disease-modifying therapeutic interventions for neurodegenerative diseases, announced today it has been selected to present clinical data from its proprietary gamma sensory stimulation in patients with Alzheimer’s Disease, at the 2022 Clinical Trials in Alzheimer's Disease (CTAD), held November 29 - December 2, in San Francisco, CA.

“We’re excited to present data at CTAD 2022 showing our proprietary gamma sensory stimulation for a 6-month period reduced brain atrophy and preserved cognitive function in patients with Alzheimer’s Disease,” said Brent Vaughan, CEO, Cognito Therapeutics. “Our clinical data has shown that our novel approach significantly slowed disease progression, preserving both brain function and brain volume in Alzheimer’s patients. We believe the preservation of brain gray and white matter will have particularly important clinical implications, with broad applications in Alzheimer’s and other neurological disorders.”

Details of the poster presentation are below:

Poster Title: Increase in white matter volume and myelination after 6 months of 40Hz gamma sensory stimulation therapy in patients on Alzheimer’s Disease spectrum

Poster Number: P076
