ATX01 is currently in Phase 2 clinical development in Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy: The "ACT" study is in progress in the US and Europe. In addition, FDA and the German regulatory authority BfArM approved the initiation of a Phase 2 Proof-of-Concept study of ATX01 in a rare and painful disease, erythromelalgia ; The "EASE" study will start in Q2 2023 in the US and Germany.
ATX01’s topical administration enables the direct blockade of pain messaging in the nerve fibers of the skin, and limits the systemic side-effects potential associated with oral or intravenous drugs.
Cognition Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of innovative, small molecule therapeutics targeting age-related degenerative disorders of the central nervous system and retina. We are currently investigating our lead candidate CT1812 in clinical programs in Alzheimer’s disease, dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and dry age-related macular degeneration (dry AMD). We believe CT1812 and our pipeline of σ-2 receptor modulators can regulate pathways that are impaired in these diseases. We believe that targeting the σ-2 receptor with CT1812 represents a mechanism functionally distinct from other current approaches in clinical development for the treatment of degenerative diseases.
