"In this study, we have within our NeuroRestore platform developed new small molecules that can enhance NGF/TrkA and BDNF/TrkB signaling, and which show potent effect in various behavioral models. Our data indicates that molecules that enhance NGF/TrkA and BDNF/TrkB signaling, have a broad therapeutic potential in neurodegenerative diseases", commented Ms. Dahlström, 

Dr. Pontus Forsell, who is the lead author of the second study, will have his poster presentation on March 29-30. The title of the poster is Identification and Development of Positive Modulators of Neurotrophin Signaling for Symptomatic Treatment of Cognitive Dysfunction.

"There is substantial preclinical support for our two candidate drugs, ACD855 and ACD856, as novel cognitive enhancers in vivo. There is a strong evidence from both different cellular contexts in vitro as well as from multiple efficacy models in vivo. ACD855 is currently in a clinical phase 1 study whereas ACD856 is in pre-clinical development", commented Dr. Forsell,
