BETHESDA, Md., March 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gain Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: GANX) (“Gain”), a biotechnology company transforming the drug discovery paradigm with structurally targeted allosteric regulators (STARs) identified with its proprietary computational discovery platform, today presented new pre-clinical data from its Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease programs. These results were highlighted in a poster presentation at the International Conference on Alzheimer’s (AD) and Parkinson’s Diseases (PD) being held March 15 – 20, 2022 virtually and in Barcelona, Spain. The data shows that improvement of the lysosomal function through the enhancement of glucocerebrosidase (GCase) levels and activity can improve key pathological features in α-synucleinopathies and AD.
Gain Therapeutics Outlines SEE-Tx Platform and Computational Biology Approach to Drug Design at R&D Day
Bethesda-based Gain presented preclinical data from its Gaucher disease program at the 18th Annual WORLDSymposium on lysosomal disease research that showed the compounds the company is developing increase the levels of GCase protein, deplete phosphorylated alpha-synuclein, and increase autophagic flux. Gain Chief Executive Officer Eric Richman said the data presented at the symposium validates the company’s SEE-Tx platform, as well as the potential of the Gaucher-aimed candidate, GT-02329, that is demonstrating an ability to restore key lysosomal functions and showing promise as a first-in-class therapy for the treatment of neuronopathic Gaucher disease. Richman said the company’s Gaucher program could be in the clinic next year.
Gain Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: GANX) (“Gain”), a biotechnology company focused on identifying and optimizing allosteric binding sites that have never been targeted in neurodegenerative diseases and lysosomal storage disorders, today announced that it will be hosting an R&D Day Event and participating in upcoming scientific conferences.

Gain Therapeutics, Inc. Announces Positive Topline Data in Patient-derived iPSC Study Evaluating STAR Compounds as a Treatment for Gaucher and Parkinson’s Disease
Gain Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: GANX) (“Gain”, or the “Company”), a biotechnology company focused on identifying and optimizing allosteric binding sites never before targeted in neurodegenerative diseases and lysosomal storage disorders, today announced topline data from the Company’s study, conducted at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM). The study, evaluating two lead Structurally Targeted Allosteric Regulators (STARs) compounds – GT-02287 and GT-02329 – for the treatment of Gaucher and GBA1 Parkinson’s Disease, demonstrated positive effects on all tested phenotypes.
Gain Therapeutics Announces Issuance of Two New PCT Patents Covering GBA and GALC Modulator Compounds for Treatment of CNS Disorders
Gain Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: GANX) (“Gain”), a biotechnology company focused on redefining drug discovery by identifying and optimizing allosteric binding sites that have never before been targeted, today announced the publication of two PCT patents. PCT/IB2020/061158 and PCT/IB2020/0611156 are directed at compounds targeting misfolded beta-glucocerebrosidase (GBA) and galactosylceramidase (GALC) respectively, addressing central nervous system (CNS) and demyelinating disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease, Lewy body dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Compounds reverse the neurodegenerative process observed in a Parkinson’s disease in vivo model
Compounds are novel allosteric regulators that bind, stabilize and restore activity of mutated GCase
Compounds decrease both phosphorylated and aggregated α-synuclein levels in vitro and in vivo
