What is AT-1501?
ALS/TDI; officially known as The ALS Therapy Development Institute has been working with their passionate research team developing AT-1501 since 2013. Currently, it is being evaluated for safety towards humans. To move AT-1501 through a Phase 2 clinical trial, we will need to raise $30,000,000.
AT-1501 has produced the most exciting outcomes since the inception of ALS/TDI. According to Steve Perrin, Ph.D, CEO/CSO, AT-1501 is the most effective potential treatment tested for ALS. It has shown in lab tests to achieve the following outcomes:
- Extended Life Span Significantly
- Delayed Disease onset
- Improved Body Weight, signaling that muscle is healthier
- Improved the percentage of neuro-muscular junctions allowing muscles to remain functional
- Decreased indications of inflammation in nerves and spinal cord
AT-1501 is an antibody with therapeutic and promising preclinical data. It blocks specific immune cell activation and may protect nerves against the progression of ALS.
