ometabolism.  Numerous studies have shown that an early feature of AD is region-specific declines in cerebral glucose metabolism.  One strategy to treat this condition has been to supplement the brain's normal glucose supply with ketone bodies.

"Accera is in a period of significant growth in both the commercialization of Axona and development of clinical trials with AC-1204.  I look forward to leading the Company in both efforts," said Dr. Werner.  "The IND acceptance for AC-1204 represents a further validation of Accera's methods, research and commitment to advancing novel therapeutic alternatives for Alzheimer's disease.  We expect the ALERT study will further demonstrate the long-term benefits of Accera's approach to Alzheimer's."

About AC-1204

AC-1204 targets the metabolic deficiencies and imbalances associated with Alzheimer's disease by providing ketone bodies as an alternative energy source for brain cells that have defective glucose metabolism.  This approach has been shown to safely improve cognitive function and memory in AD patients and in pre-clinical animal models of dementia.
