Allon Therapeutics to Present New Data at Leerink Swann Alzheimer's,Conference

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 3, 2007 - Allon Therapeutics Inc. (TSX:NPC), The Neuro Protection Company(TM), announced today the publication of new preclinical data from additional confirmatory animal studies showing that Allon's product candidate AL-108 significantly reduces the accumulation of amyloid peptide and the hyperphosphorylation of tau protein in the brain, two pathological hallmarks of Alzheimer's.

Gordon McCauley, Allon's President and Chief Executive Officer, announced this publication to a conference in New York sponsored by investment bank Leerink Swann & Company entitled "A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste: Emerging Trends for Alzheimer's Disease." The invitation only event for institutional investors, venture capitalists and hedge fund managers who invest in the healthcare sector, highlights select companies developing Alzheimer's treatments.

"Our Alzheimer's program is based on this very compelling data showing that our compounds work on both of the classic hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease and the Phase II efficacy program is enrolling well," said McCauley. "We believe that we have implemented a sound and strategically balanced clinical plan for our compounds and we anticipate the results eagerly."

"Data published in The Journal of Molecular Neuroscience shows that AL-108 can modify disease progression in one of the most relevant models of Alzheimer's disease and our clinical development program is working to demonstrate this capability in human clinical trials," McCauley said.

McCauley said Allon is focused on developing drugs to treat processes underlying numerous neurodegenerative diseases and injury of the central nervous system. Drugs on the market today treat only the symptoms of these diseases and conditions.
