TREVENTIS Corporation Closes $4.4 Million Financing with Wellcome Trust
Date:9/19/2013

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TREVENTIS Corporation announced today that it received a $4.4 million Seeding Drug Discovery Award from the Wellcome Trust to continue development of a potentially disease-modifying drug for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). 

Recent studies demonstrate that the misfolding and subsequent aggregation of both beta-amyloid and tau are primary events in the Alzheimer's disease process.  Using a novel, proprietary drug design platform, TREVENTIS synthesized a class of organic drug-like molecules with the unique capability of binding to both beta-amyloid and tau, preventing aggregation of both proteins using a single drug. 

This financing supports the continued progression of TREVENTIS' compounds with the initial objective of delivering an AD drug candidate into first-in-man clinical testing.  The ultimate goal is to provide a drug that effectively and safely prevents the progression of AD.

"This financing signals a transformational event for TREVENTIS.  It provides the resources necessary to progress our critically important drug development and validates the scientific approach we have taken" said William McIntosh, Chairman and CEO, TREVENTIS. 

The principal investigator, board-certified neurologist and renowned medicinal chemist, Donald F. Weaver, MD, PhD, said: "I am deeply honored to receive this funding from the Wellcome Trust.  It enables us to advance important research that will profoundly and positively impact our efforts to treat people with chronic neurological dementias such as Alzheimer's."
