“As we enter 2019, our financial expectations reflect a thoughtful balance between maintaining fiscal discipline and advancing our series of product candidates aimed at Alzheimer’s disease,” said Remi Barbier, President & CEO. “One thing that won’t change is our focus on developing potential breakthrough innovations and an unwavering dedication to improve people’s lives. This emphasis has characterized our history and remains core to our strategy for 2019 and beyond.”

Cassava Sciences is conducting a Phase 2 clinical program with its investigational drug, PTI-125, in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is providing substantial scientific and financial support for the Company’s clinical program.

Cassava Sciences expects to announce results of its Phase 2a study in the second half of 2019, after study participants complete drug treatment and their data are analyzed.
