GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tetra Discovery Partners LLC, a leader in the design of new treatments for major neurological conditions based on PDE4 modulation in the brain, today announced it has been awarded a five-year cooperative agreement by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  The award will support Tetra's efforts to develop a new drug to treat mild cognitive impairment, which is typically associated with aging and often precedes and accompanies Alzheimer's disease.

Tetra's award includes up to $1.5 million in direct funding and access to millions of additional dollars worth of contracted research services; the Company estimates that the total value of the NIH award to be worth at least $10 million over the project's anticipated five-year period.  The award was made through the Blueprint Neurotherapeutics Network (BPN), a recently launched NIH initiative involving the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the National Institute of Aging.  Under the terms of its cooperative agreement with NIH, Tetra will retain the intellectual property related to its research and be responsible for the commercialization of the new drug.
