The first two patients of the trial have been dosed. The Phase 2b initiation follows positive Phase 2a results (see note 9/9, LINK) in which a 100% responder rate and statistically significant reductions (p<0.001) in key AD biomarkers were noted, including an improved cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) P-tau to Aβ42 ratio (p<0.001), which has been found to correlate with cognitive deficiencies.""

  • 3. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Our $3 PT was derived by using a weighted- average cost of capital of 13% for Cassava shares to discount free cash flows from our projection of annual sales of PTI-125 in Alzheimer’s disease, and dividing them by our projected number of shares for each year to account for the effects of share dilution."
