Cognition's proprietary lead product candidate, CT1812, is an orally delivered, small molecule designed to penetrate the blood-brain barrier and bind selectively to the σ-2 receptor complex, a key multiprotein regulator of cellular processes that are disrupted in Alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases. CT1812 is currently in Phase 2 clinical development and has been granted FDA Fast Track designation in Alzheimer’s disease and is covered by composition-of-matter patents through 2035.

About Cognition Therapeutics:
Cognition Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of innovative, small molecule therapeutics targeting age-related degenerative diseases and disorders of the central nervous system, or CNS, and retina. Our goal is to develop disease modifying treatments for patients with these degenerative disorders by initially leveraging our expertise in the σ-2 (sigma-2) receptor, or S2R, which is expressed by multiple cell types, including neuronal synapses, and acts as a key regulator of cellular damage commonly associated with certain age-related degenerative diseases of the CNS and retina. We believe that targeting the S2R complex represents a mechanism that is functionally distinct from other current approaches in clinical development for the treatment of degenerative diseases.
