Intellect Neurosciences, Inc. Grants to Top Tier Global Pharmaceutical Company an Option to License Certain Alzheimer's Patents and Patent Applications

prevent the accumulation of aggregated beta amyloid protein fragments in the brain that are thought to be the root cause of Alzheimer's disease. In healthy people, beta amyloid does not aggregate but in Alzheimer's patients it clumps first to form long fibrils, like tentacles, that eventually deposit on the surface of nerve cells as a spaghetti-like protein mass called amyloid plaques. The beta amyloid fragments are generated as a product of metabolism from the much larger Amyloid Precursor Protein which is present in most tissues in the body and implicated in numerous important physiological functions. Intellect's immunotherapy approach for Alzheimer's disease involves making an antibody molecule available to bind to the beta-amyloid toxin, thus promoting its clearance away from sites of damage the brain. This therapeutic outcome can be potentially achieved either by administering an externally generated monoclonal antibody (passive immunization) or by provoking the patient's immune system to generate such an antibody (active immunization). Both approaches have the potential to slow or arrest disease progression provided that key safety issues are addressed. Of particular importance is the need to avoid interfering with the physiological roles of the Amyloid Precursor Protein. Intellect's has incorporated proprietary safety features into its ANTISENILIN(R) monoclonal antibody and RECALL-VAXTM technology platforms for both passive and active immunization, respectively to minimize the potential for adverse side-effects by generating antibodies that bind only the toxic beta amyloid and not the Amyloid Precursor Protein. These features and supporting patent position provides the Company with a strong competitive advantage in this field.
