Alpha Cognition Inc. is committed to addressing the urgent need for new therapies in neurodegenerative diseases, focusing on Alzheimer’s disease and Cognitive Impairment with mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI), areas currently lacking FDA-approved treatments. ALPHA-1062 represents a new class of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors with a unique mechanism that minimizes gastrointestinal side effects, setting it apart from existing treatments like donepezil and rivastigmine. Its active metabolite targets neuronal nicotinic receptors, particularly the alpha-7 subtype, which plays a crucial role in cognitive function.
