Trophos Describes Identification, Characterization and Broad Neuroprotective Properties of TRO19622 in Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics

Neurodegenerative Disease Specialists Publish Details of a Novel Drug Candidate for ALS That Targets Mitochondrial Proteins

MARSEILLE, June 19th, 2007 - Trophos SA, a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the discovery and development of drugs for neurological disorders, announced today that a publication entitled "Identification and characterization of TRO19622 (cholest-4-en-3-one, oxime), a novel drug candidate for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" has been accepted and published online May 11, 2007 in the Journal of Pharmacology And Experimental Therapeutics (J Pharmacol. Exp. Ther. 2007 May 11; [Epub ahead of print]).

Amylotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease in the USA, is a progressive and fatal neurological disease that is estimated to affect about 100,000 people worldwide. There is no cure for ALS. The only drug approved for ALS is riluzole (Rilutek(R), Sanofi-Aventis), which has been demonstrated to confer some survival benefit to ALS patients.

The studies reported in the paper by Bordet et al., (see below) identify two protein targets of TRO19622 present in the outer mitochondrial membrane suggesting that the compound has potential in a range of additional commercially attractive therapeutic indications involving mitochondrial dysfunction, including painful neuropathies. The publication describes the models of motor neuron disease employed to support the use of this compound to treat ALS, as well as spinal muscular atrophy. TRO19622 is currently in a Phase IIa clinical trial to establish its efficacy as a treatment for painful diabetic neuropathy.

TRO19622 is representative of novel compounds identified using the proprietary neuronal cell screening platform developed at Tr
