Agreement Provides for Option to License Alzheimer’s Therapeutic
Englewood Cliffs NJ, Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silo Pharma, Inc. (OTCQB: SILO), a development-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the use of psychedelics as a therapeutic, today announced that it has entered into a sponsored research agreement with Columbia University pursuant to which Silo has been granted an option to license certain assets currently under development, including Alzheimer’s disease.
This agreement incorporates the work of Dr. Christine Ann Denny, an Associate Professor of Clinical Neurobiology (in Psychiatry) at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Denny and her team are focusing their efforts on the molecular mechanisms underlying learning and memory, including diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. An estimated 5.8 million Americans, including one in ten people, age 65 and older, currently live with Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Denny’s pioneering research into whether ketamine and the novel inventions that may be licensed by Silo may improve memory retrieval, halt, or even reverse, the process of Alzheimer’s disease-related to memory loss or cognitive aging, could have life-altering implications for people suffering with everything from Alzheimer’s disease to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Eric Weisblum, CEO of Silo Pharma stated “We are excited to partner with Dr. Denny and Columbia University, a world-renowned institution that is at the forefront of research and development in this area. To be able to bring hope and possibly a therapeutic to patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease is an exciting proposition for Silo Pharma. The unique compounds being developed at Columbia have shown tremendous promise and we look forward to continuing to explore and develop these therapeutics.”
