Anavex reports animal study results as lead Alzheimer's compound approaches phase 1 clinical trials
Date:5/4/2010

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, May 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Anavex Life Sciences Corp. ("ANAVEX") (OTCBB: AVXL) is pleased to report promising results from animal studies with ANAVEX 2-73, the company's lead compound for the treatment and modification of Alzheimer's disease.

ANAVEX 2-73 is the first of a new class of drugs that target mitochondrial dysfunction thought to be caused by oxidative stress to modify Alzheimer's disease. This novel mechanism acts primarily via sigma receptors and is not a direct amyloid, nor tau, nor mitochondrial pore blockade mechanism. ANAVEX is developing non-amyloid focused approaches to disease modification in Alzheimer's disease and believes mitochondrial dysfunction caused by oxidative stress to be an underlying cause of Alzheimer's disease. By modulating ion channel signaling at a mitochondrial level, the company believes this class of patent-protected compounds may offer a new, disease-modifying approach in several neurological and neurodegenerative disorders.

Validated and standard animal models used to assess effects typically seen in Alzheimer's disease have been completed with excellent results. These studies were conducted in partnership with a leading Contract Research Organization, FORENAP Pharma EURL, which specializes in neuroscience and Alzheimer's disease research. The studies included oral and IV dosing and 28-day animal toxicity studies. Extensive studies were conducted in three species: rats, mice and dogs.

The company expects to submit the IND (Investigational New Drug) package to regulatory authorities in the near term.

"ANAVEX is delighted with the evidence generated in these extensive studies, including a favorable toxicology profile," said Dr. Cameron Durrant, Exec
