Pangea Announces Upcoming Abstract Presentation at AD/PD 2024 Conference in Lisbon

London, Feb 22, 2024 - Pangea Bio*, a company developing transformative medicines for neurological disorders, today announced that the company will present exciting new preclinical data with its lead drug candidate OT-003 at the International Conference on Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases, to be held March 5-9 in Lisbon, Portugal. The data will be presented by Dr Alleyn Plowright, Chief Scientific Officer, and Dr Thomas Pfeiffer, Executive Director of R&D.

Abstract Title: TrkB Modulator OT-003 reduces dopaminergic cell loss, mitochondrial stress, alpha-synuclein aggregation and motor dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease models

The study results demonstrate the disease-modifying potential of OT-003 through targeting multiple hallmarks of Parkinson’s in two separate cellular disease models. The data shows that OT-003 significantly and dose-dependently reduces dopaminergic neuronal cell death, neurite network loss, mitochondrial stress, and alpha-synuclein aggregation. The data is complemented by an in vivo animal study where OT-003 significantly reduces Parkinson’s pathologies and improves motor function.

About OT-003

OT-003 is a proprietary small molecule modulator of the Tropomyosin receptor kinase B (TrkB) with compelling results across a range of cellular and in vivo animal models for CNS diseases. Preclinical data demonstrates that OT-003 promotes neuronal survival and plasticity, reduces pathological protein aggregation and alleviates functional disability. OT-003 is currently undergoing clinical-enabling  safety pharmacology and  toxicology studies with clinical studies  planned to commence by Q1 2025.
