Angita Pharmaceuticals and Motac enter into a joint research collaboration to evaluate AG-0029, a putative treatment for both the motor and cognitive symptoms in Parkinson’s disease.
AG-0029, a combined dopamine D2 receptor agonist and histamine H3 receptor antagonist, was discovered by Angita and has been shown to have cognitive enhancing potential and PD-related motor improvements in rodent models. Motac will invest in the project to extend the existing proof-of-concept studies including evaluation of Parkinson’s disease-related motor and cognitive disturbances in the most relevant and translational models. Jointly, Angita and Motac aim to ensure the continued development of AG-0029, raising funds to initiate additional non-clinical development studies.
