James Mazzo Appointed Executive Chairman of Neurotech Pharmaceuticals
Date:8/6/2013

CUMBERLAND, R.I., Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Neurotech Pharmaceuticals, a biotechnology company developing sight-saving therapies for chronic retinal disease, announced today that James Mazzo was appointed the company's Executive Chairman.  Mazzo, a long time leader in the ophthalmic industry, is the former CEO of Abbott Medical Optics (AMO), is an Operating Partner at Versant Ventures and was recently named Chairman and CEO of AcuFocus, a Versant portfolio company.

As Executive Chairman, Mazzo will engage with the Neurotech team to advance the Company's novel technology platform through the clinical development stage toward market availability.

"Neurotech's technology is truly groundbreaking and I am confident it will bring improved therapy to serious retinal diseases such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration, and macular telangiectasia – diseases that ultimately cause blindness," said James Mazzo.

Neurotech's patented core technology platform, Encapsulated Cell Technology (ECT), is a genetically engineered implant that enables the continuous delivery of protein drugs directly into the vitreous of the eye.  The Company has demonstrated that a single living ECT implant can treat a diseased retina for two years or more, thereby eliminating the need for monthly injections, the conventional approach to treating retinal disease.  ECT systems can produce all classes of modern biotherapeutic drugs, including peptides, hormones, monoclonal antibodies, antibody fragments and next generation alternative scaffolds.  As a robust technology platform, ECT can be adapted to also generate protein drugs targeting uveitis, glaucoma and other ophthalmic indications.
