Karolinska Development’s portfolio company Umecrine Cognition presents preclinical Parkinson’s data on golexanolone at AD/PD

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – March 6, 2024. Karolinska Development AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: KDEV) today announces that its portfolio company Umecrine Cognition will present recent nonclinical data elucidating golexanolone’s mode-of-action in Parkinson’s disease at the 18th International Conference on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases 2024 in Lisbon, Portugal, during March 5-9.

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease hallmarked by motor symptoms and disrupted cognitive functions as well as mental health.

The study that will be presented at the AD/PD conference shows that golexanolone improves both motor symptoms and non-motor symptoms, including fatigue, anxiety and depression. Further, golexanolone was found to partially inhibit the decrease of enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase and prevent the increase of neurotoxic protein alpha-synuclein, both key targets in the symptomology of Parkinson’s disease. The study also showed a decreased activation of brain immune cells, indicating lowered levels of neuroinflammation.

“The results further support the proposed mechanism-of-action of golexanolone also in Parkinson’s disease and exhibits positive effects on Parkinsonian symptoms and potential for disease modification, a very promising feature in Umecrine Cognition’s candidate drug in a field with great medical need,” says Viktor Drvota, CEO of Karolinska Development.

Umecrine Cognition’s abstract has been accepted for presentation at the poster session “Alpha-Synucleinopathies, Therapeutic Targets, Mechanisms for Treatment” on Wednesday, March 6th, as well as at the oral ePoster presentation, a virtual format for digital meeting attendees. A representative from Umecrine Cognition’s scientific collaborator will present the abstract titled: Golexanolone, a GABA-A receptor-modulating steroid antagonist, improves fatigue, anxiety, depression and some cognitive and motor alterations in 6-OHDA rats (abstract #2586).

Karolinska Development's ownership in Umecrine Cognition amounts to 73 percent.
