Annovis Bio

MALVERN, PAAnnovis Bio Inc. (NYSE: ANVS) recently disclosed the encouraging results of its Phase III clinical trial related to Parkinson’s disease treatment. The experimental drug, buntanetap, has shown efficacy in enhancing motor skills, non-motor activities, and cognitive functions in early-stage Parkinson’s patients.

During a clinical trial, the trial drug demonstrated a significant slowing-down, and even outright halting, of cognitive decline amongst all participants. What’s more, in patients diagnosed with mild dementia, buntanetap also revealed marked cognitive improvement. In the realm of motor and non-motor functions for patients with Parkinson’s disease for over three years, the drug exhibited considerable betterment as well.

Maria Maccecchini, the Founder, President and CEO of Annovis Bio stated that the company was “very pleased to see improvements in many of our patients over such a short course of treatment.” These decisive data reinforce Annovis Bio’s commitment to advancing buntanetap into a more prolonged study which will help to further assess the drug’s disease-modifying properties and symptomatic improvements.

Quite notably, buntanetap exhibited positive effects in patients having Postural Instability and Gait Difficulty (PIGD), a condition that usually indicates a faster progression of Parkinson’s disease. Patients diagnosed with PIGD displayed significant enhancements following treatment with buntanetap, suggesting that this group of Parkinson’s patients could particularly benefit from the new drug.

The safety profile of buntanetap remained consistent across early and advanced stages of Parkinson’s disease, underscoring previous safety data from related studies.

This groundbreaking research is of paramount importance as it holds potential to revolutionize the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Not only does buntanetap propose to alleviate symptoms but also to modify the progression of the disease, offering hope to millions battling this debilitating condition.
