GliaCure Highlighted in ADDF Annual Report

GliaCure’s compound GC021109 and its successful Phase 1 clinical trial were highlighted in the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) Annual Report, issued in late 2017. The report points out that there is growing research to suggest that anti-inflammatory approaches may hold the key to treating the underlying causes of Alzheimer’s disease, and shows that GC021109 is one of the few novel anti-inflammatory small molecules being developed; however, the report also makes clear the challenges for companies in the Alzheimer’s field, including regulatory hurdles, difficulties in trial recruitment, and lack of validated biomarkers.
