"These presentations and findings add to the growing body of research supporting our hypothesis that factors in the plasma proteome play an important modulatory role in age-related disease, particularly cognitive dysfunction and neurodegeneration. This presents an entirely new opportunity for therapeutic interventions," said Karoly Nikolich, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Alkahest. "As the world's population grows older, the burden of age-related diseases will quickly become one of the greatest medical challenges of our generation. Our innovative therapeutics targeting the plasma proteome are currently in clinical development and are well-positioned to address this critical need," said Jonas Hannestad, M.D., Ph.D., Alkahest's Vice President, Clinical Development.
About AlkahestAlkahest is a privately-held clinical-stage company based in the San Francisco Bay Area developing treatments for age-related diseases, with an emphasis on neurodegeneration — a key medical challenge for our generation. The company's breakthrough research has elucidated changes in the plasma proteome in healthy aging and age-related diseases, and demonstrated that factors in the blood plasma can be augmented or inhibited in order to reverse detrimental effects of aging in both normal aging and disease models in animals.
