Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) remains a highly debilitating and life-threatening neurological disease despite approved therapies on the market. Current therapies offer benefits to some patients, but there remains a high unmet need for new therapies and disease research. The roundtable, which will focus on current research and development in the area of ALS, will be moderated by Maxim Group Senior Biotechnology Analyst Naz Rahman, CFA, and will feature Mr. Etherington as well as Alon Ben -Noon, co-founder and CEO of NeuroSense Therapeutics.
Focused on advancing new drugs, Clene is currently in late-stage clinical development with its lead drug candidate, CNM-Au8®, as a potential treatment for ALS. The company is awaiting first data in the third quarter from the HEALEY ALS Platform Phase 2/3 registrational trial evaluating CNM-Au8 in patients with ALS. CNM-Au8 is an oral suspension of gold nanocrystals developed to restore neuronal health and function by increasing energy production and utilization. Catalytically active CNM-Au8 nanocrystals drive critical cellular energy-producing responses that enable neuroprotection and remyelination by increasing neuronal and glial resilience to disease-related stressors. CNM-Au8 is a federally registered trademark of Clene Nanomedicine, Inc.
Clene is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company whose goal is to revolutionize the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases by targeting energy failures, an underlying cause of many neurological diseases. The company is based in Salt Lake City, Utah, with R&D and manufacturing operations in Maryland. For more information, please visit www.clene.com or follow us on Twitter, LinkedInand Facebook.
