T3D Therapeutics Receives a Research Award from the Alzheimer's Association Part the Cloud-Gates Partnership Grant Program
T3D Therapeutics to Receive Alzheimer's Association Grant in Support of the Phase 2 PIONEER Study in Mild-to-Moderate Alzheimer's Disease Subjects
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Aug. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- T3D Therapeutics, a clinical stage drug development company engaged in the development of T3D-959, a new orally administered treatment for Alzheimer's disease (AD), announced today that it has received a $740,000 grant from the Alzheimer's Association Part the Cloud-Gates Partnership Grant Program in support of clinical trial biomarker studies. These biomarker studies are an integral part of the upcoming Phase 2 clinical study of T3D-959, a novel, metabolic-focused AD drug treatment.
The Phase 2 PIONEER study (Prospective therapy to Inhibit and Overcome Alzheimer's Disease Neurodegeneration via Brain EnErgetics and Metabolism Restoration) is expected to initiate patient dosing in early 2021. PIONEER is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group Phase 2 safety and efficacy study expected to enroll up to 252 adults with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease (MMSE 16-26). PIONEER will enroll subjects who will receive one of three different doses of T3D-959 or a placebo for 24 weeks.
"It is an honor to have won this highly competitive award from the Alzheimer's Association Part the Cloud-Gates Partnership Grant Program and the recognition that improving inherent metabolic defects in Alzheimer's disease is a vital and largely unexplored therapeutic avenue to treat AD" said Chief Executive Officer John Didsbury, Ph.D.
