ALS Therapy Development Institute and Aestus Therapeutics, Inc., Expand Collaboration on Development of Novel ALS Therapies
Date:9/19/2011

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) and Aestus Therapeutics, Inc., announced today the expansion of their current research collaboration agreement to test additional small-molecule compounds for the ability to slow or stop the progression of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease).  The expanded scope of this collaboration is based on encouraging results from early-stage animal studies conducted in the past year under the existing collaboration.

"This collaboration is an important example of how our Institute, built by the ALS community -, is dedicated to speeding the development of new therapies and has become the leader in preclinical validation of potential treatments for ALS.  We are encouraged by these early results and look forward to expanding our partnership with Aestus on behalf of patients today," says Steve Perrin, Ph.D., president and CEO of ALS TDI.

The original research collaboration was established between ALS TDI and Aestus in March 2010 to test a compound identified by Aestus's proprietary gene-based drug discovery platform in an animal model of ALS. Results obtained by ALS TDI using their rigorous pre-clinical drug testing process were encouraging and warranted expansion of the collaboration to test compounds with a similar mode of action.  

"We at Aestus are delighted to expand our research collaboration with ALS TDI to identify novel therapeutics for this devastating disease," says Tage Honore, Ph.D. D.Sc., CEO and founder of Aestus.  "The expansion of our research agreement with ALS TDI is based on a truly collaborative approach involving scientists at both institutions. We are particularly gratified that the encouraging results from experiments at ALS TDI have helped to furt
