Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation Funds American Life Science Pharmaceuticals, Inc to Move Novel Therapeutic Towards Clinic
Date:5/24/2010

NEW YORK, May 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) announced today that it is providing a grant of $248,000 to American Life Science Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ALSP) to allow for manufacture of its lead drug candidate to be used in preclinical toxicology testing in preparation for entering Phase I clinical trials early in 2011.

ALSP is developing new methods to effectively treat neurodegenerative disease with an initial focus on Alzheimer's disease (AD). ALSP has identified a new class of drugs that prevent memory deficit and pathology in animal models of AD. "Our proprietary lead compound, AB-007, has previously been evaluated for a different indication in human clinical trials and shown to be safe and well tolerated," said company CEO, Michael D. Pierschbacher, PhD. "Our goal is to conduct clinical trials on AB-007 to confirm as soon as possible the observed preclinical efficacy for treatment of AD."

ALSP was recently awarded a National Institute on Aging (NIA) contract to pay for all Investigational New Drug (IND)-enabling toxicology and pharmacology studies. "This ADDF grant combined with the NIA contract makes it possible for us to move this promising Alzheimer's drug through toxicology testing toward the clinic at maximum speed," said Greg Hook, PhD, JD, an ALSP founder. ALSP is currently launching aggressive efforts to raise Series A financing.

ALSP's technology comes out of Vivian Hook, PhD's laboratory at the UCSD Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Dr. Hook discovered that a novel target enzyme may be responsible for the production of the majority of the beta amyloid peptide in sporadic A
