Darmiyan will offer a series of diagnostic tools aimed at early detection of complex brain diseases including neurodegenerative disorders. Darmiyan will get brain MRI data from human patients to elucidate the current condition, and which disease state the brain is progressing toward. The significance of Darmiyan’s innovation is invaluable potential to diagnose disease potential before severe symptoms develop. This novel insight originates with our technology to extract information not from the brain cells/ neurons, which exhibit abnormality only after extensive damage and cell death occurs, but from the immediate environment around them, which is called extracellular space (ECS). The ECS is often thought of as just intercellular “space,” but in reality it is the electrical and chemical pathway between all brain cells that plays an essential role in brain function and drug delivery.

Anavex™ Life Sciences Corp. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development of novel drug candidates to treat Alzheimer’s, CNS diseases and various types of cancer, which have significant unmet medical needs.

ANAVEX™ 2-73, the Company’s orally available drug candidate developed to treat Alzheimer’s through potential disease modification, has undergone an initial Phase 1 human clinical trial and was well tolerated in doses up to 55mg.  Results from pre-clinical studies indicate that ANAVEX 2-73 demonstrates anti-amnesic and neuroprotective properties.

A highly encouraging synergistic effect has also been observed between ANAVEX 2-73 and donepezil (Aricept®).  The combined therapeutics, referred to as “ANAVEX™ PLUS,” produced up to 80% greater reversal of memory loss in Alzheimer’s disease models versus when the drugs were used individually.

ANAVEX PLUS is believed to be a compelling commercial opportunity.  The clinical trial risk is lower because donepezil (Aricept®) is already on the market, with global sales of $4-billion annually.  Donepezil (Aricept®) is now generic and a patent application has been filed for ANAVEX PLUS which, if granted, would provide protection until 2033.

Headquartered in New York, Anavex is an American publicly traded corporation quoted as AVXL.
