RVX-208 Exploratory Study Illustrates Early Potential for Alzheimer's Disease
Date:11/10/2008

Examination (MMSE), and a significant inverse relationship between increased total and LDL cholesterol and learning and memory. Elevated cholesterol levels are thought to increase the production and accumulation of the putative AD neurotoxin, amyloid-beta (A-beta). The A-beta peptide is produced by aberrant cleavage of a larger precursor protein resulting in two lengths, either 42 or 40 amino acids long.

"Stemming from RVX-208's effects on ApoA-I, Prebeta-HDL production and the facilitation of reverse cholesterol transport, we hypothesized that RVX-208 might increase circulating A-beta40 levels through its effects on functional HDL, which can act as a sponge to draw A-beta40 from the brain to the circulation, for enhanced clearance from the body," stated Dr. Sparks. "Although it was a pilot study, with minimal subjects, we were pleased to find a positive signal and look forward to performing further research on RVX-208 in this critical area of unmet medical need," Dr. Sparks added.

"We are pleased and cautious about these early results," stated Kenneth Lebioda, Senior Vice President of Business and Corporate Development of Resverlogix. "This data provides important evidence solidifying our strategy to continue research efforts in this important disease area. We have always maintained a strategic life cycle management strategy that ensures the pursuit of important research in areas of critical unmet need. Our progress in Alzheimer's disease research illustrates our commitment to build a broad portfolio of opportunities in areas of unmet need for our lead drug and our NexVas(TM) platform technology. We look forward to continue our research collaboration with Dr. Sparks in this important medical area."
