CT-1812 is a first-in-class, orally available sigma-2/PGRMC1 antagonist (alpha beta oligomer receptor antagonist), is being developed by Cognition. sCT-1812 is a novel therapeutic candidate for Alzheimer’s disease



CT1812 is a small-molecule antagonist of the sigma2 receptor, also known as the progesterone receptor membrane component 1. The rationale behind this therapeutic approach is that ligands for the sigma2/PGRMC1 receptor will compete with oligomeric Aβ binding to this receptor and thus interfere with Aβ-induced synaptic toxicity. CT1812 grew out of screening programs at Cognition Therapeutics. Company scientists have reported that compounds in this series not only block binding of a range of different Aβ species to this receptor but also displace it when applied after Aβ has bound (Dec 2014 conference news).

The structure of CT1812 has not been disclosed, but similar compounds in the series have been reported to enter the brain, occupy up to 80 percent of sigma2/PGRMC1 receptors, and restore behavioral deficits in APP transgenic mice (Izzo et al., 2014Izzo et al., 2014).


From September 2015 to May 2016, Cognition Therapeutics ran a Phase 1 trial in 80 healthy volunteers aged 18 to 75 in Melbourne, Australia; target enrollment was originally listed as 114. Single-ascending-dose administration was followed by multiple ascending doses given once daily for two weeks. The dose range in this trial spanned 10 to 650 mg; if this would not generate data to set a maximum tolerated dose, doses up to 1,350 mg were to be tried. Outcome measures included safety, tolerability, plasma pharmacokinetics, and CSF CT1812 concentration. At the 2016 and 2017 AAIC conferences, company scientists reported that single doses up to 1,120 mg were given, as were multiple doses of up to 840 mg in young and up to 560 mg in elderly volunteers. The drug was reported to be well-tolerated, with suitable pharmacokinetics, sufficient brain penetrance and target exposure, and minimal drug-drug interactions affecting cytochrome P450 activity (Catalano et al., 2016Catalano et al., 2017).

From September 2016 to August 2017, Cognition Therapeutics ran a Phase 1/2 trial at four sites in Australia, enrolling 19 participants with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease supported by a recent MRI. It compared a four-week course of 90, 280, or 560 mg of CT 1812 to placebo, taken once daily, on safety and tolerability parameters. At the subsequent CTAD conference, Elayta was reported to have been generally safe and well tolerated, though there were four cases of lymphocytopenia. Exploratory measures such as ADAS-Cog14, verbal or category fluency tests recorded no difference between groups, but exploratory biomarker analyses yielded possible signals of synapse protection (Dec 2017 conference news).

In April 2018, a Phase 1/2 study started enrolling 21 people whose mild to moderate AD was confirmed by amyloid PET or CSF testing. Conducted at Yale University School of Medicine and dubbed COG0105 or SPARC, this trial will compare a six-month course of 100 or 300 mg of Elayta, or placebo. The primary outcome is cognition as assessed by the Alzheimer’s Disease Clinical Study Activities of Daily Living (ADCS-ADL), but the trial will also use the investigational PET tracer UCB-J, which binds to the synaptic vesicle glycoprotein 2A, in an attempt to monitor synapse density before and after treatment (see company press release; Jul 2016 news).

In summer 2018, a Phase 1b target engagement study at the University of Pennsylvania will start enrolling 18 people whose mild to moderate AD is confirmed by amyloid PET. Called COG0104 or SNAP, it will compare single injections of 90, 280, or 560 mg of Elayta or placebo for their ability to displace Aβ oligomers and clear them into the CSF, as measured by a CSF Aβ oligomer assay.

Also in summer 2018, a Phase 2 multi-center study is expected to begin enrolling 24 people with mild to moderate AD as confirmed by amyloid PET for a six-month course of 100 or 300 mg of Elayta, or placebo. As of May 22, 2018, this trial lists CT1812 pharmacodynamic effects on CSF biomarkers, specifically as assessed by CSF neurogranin levels, as primary outcome.

WO 2015116923

There are only five medications currently FDA-approved for the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Four are cholinesterase inhibitors: tacrine (COGNEX®; Sciele), donepezil (ARICEPT®; Pfizer), rivastigmine (EXELON®; Novartis), and galantamine (RAZADYNE®; Ortho-McNeil-Janssen). Donepezil, rivastigmine, and galantamine are successors to tacrine, a first generation compound rarely prescribed because of the potential for hepatotoxicity; they are roughly equally efficacious at providing symptomatic improvement of cognition and function at all stages of AD. The fifth approved medication is memantine (NAMENDA®; Forest), a low-affinity, use dependent N-methyl-D-aspartate glutamate receptor antagonist that offers similar benefits, but only in moderate to severe AD. The clinical effects of these compounds are small and impermanent, and currently available data are inconclusive to support their use as disease modifying agents. See, e.g., Kerchner et al, 2010, Bapineuzumab, Expert Opin Biol Ther., 10(7): 1121-1130. Clearly, alternative approaches to treatment of AD are required.

[004] Certain isoindoline compounds are provided that act as sigma-2 receptor functional antagonists and inhibit the deleterious effects of soluble Αβ oligomers. In some embodiments, isoindoline sigma-2 receptor antagonist compounds and compositions are used to treat or prevent synaptic dysfunction in a subject.

Polyphenols and Alzheimers

Ayurvedic Herbal Teas

“Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most prevalent neurodegenerative disease in the growing population of elderly people. A hallmark of AD is the accumulation of plaques in the brain of AD patients. The plaques predominantly consist of aggregates of amyloid-beta (Abeta), a peptide of 39-42 amino acids generated in vivo by specific, proteolytic cleavage of the amyloid precursor protein.” (Finder & Glockshuber)

Stefani & Rigacci review the evidence for polyphenols and their ability to reduce amyloid aggregation. Natural polyphenols are emerging as an increasingly attractive treatment for amyloid disease prevention and therapy.  Evidence suggests that they can inhibit the production of amyloidogenic peptides, increase antioxidant enzyme activity and reduce inflammation. The researchers suggest that we should now be describing them as potentially multitargeting drugs.

Potential sources of polyphenols are found in, amongst others, vegetables, fruit and green tea.

Donepezil, marketed under the trade name Aricept by its developer Eisai and partnerPfizer, is a centrally acting reversible acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. Its main therapeutic use is in the palliative treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.Common side effects include gastrointestinal upset. It has an oral bioavailability of 100% and easily crosses the blood–brain barrier. Because it has a biological half-life of about 70 hours, it can be taken once a day.

Currently, no definitive proof shows the use of donepezil or other similar agents alters the course or progression of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). However, 6 to 12-month controlled studies have shown modest benefits in cognition and/or behavior.Pilot studies have reported donepezil therapy may potentially have effects on markers of disease progression, such as hippocampal volume. Therefore, many neurologists, psychiatrists, and primary-care physicians use donepezil in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. In 2005, the UK National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) withdrew its recommendation for use of the drug for mild-to-moderate AD, on the basis of no significant improvement in functional outcome, quality of life, or behavioral symptoms. However, NICE revised its guidelines to suggest donepezil be used in moderate-stage patients for whom the evidence is strongest.

While the drug is currently indicated for mild to moderate Alzheimer’s, evidence from two clinical trials also indicates it may be effective for moderate to severe disease. An example of this is a Karolinska Institute paper published in The Lancet in early 2006, which states donepezil improves cognitive function even in patients with severe AD symptoms. In Oct. 2006 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration also approved Aricept for treatment of severe dementia.

Research leading to the development of donepezil began in 1983 at Eisai, and the first Phase I clinical trial took place in 1989. In 1996, Eisai received approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) for donepezil under the brand Aricept, which it co-marketed with Pfizer. As of 2011, Aricept was the world’s best-selling Alzheimer’s disease treatment. The first generic donepezil became available in November 2010 with the USFDA approval of a formulation prepared by Ranbaxy Labs. In April 2011 a second generic formulation, from Wockhardt, received tentative USFDA marketing approval

Donepezil hydrochloride is a useful memory enhancer introduced by the Japanese pharmaceutical company Eisai. Its preparation was described in patent no. EP 296560. In this patent Donepezil was produced by reaction of 5,6-dimethoxy-1- indanone with 1 -benzyl-4-formylpiperidine in the presence of a strong base, such as lithium diisopropylamide followed by reduction of the double bond. According to this method, Donepezil was obtained (Scheme 1).Figure 00010001Patent application WO 99/36405 describes another process for the synthesis of Donepezil. According to this patent, 2-alkoxycarbonyl-1-indanones are reacted with (4-pyridinyl) methyl halide moiety followed by hydrolysis and decarboxylation to give the 2-(4-pyridinyl)methyl-1-indanone derivative. This is followed by reaction with benzyl halides to obtain the corresponding quaternary ammonium salt, and followed by hydrogenation of the pyridine ring to obtain Donepezil (Scheme 2).Figure 00020001Patent application WO 97/22584 describes the preparation of Donepezil by reaction of pyridine-4-carboxyaldehyde with malonic acid to give 3-(pyridin-4-yl)-2- propenoic acid, followed by hydrogenation of the double bond to give 3-(piperidin-4-yl)-2-propionic acid. Reaction of this intermediate with methyl chloroformate afforded 3-[N-(methyloxycarbonyl) piperidin-4-yl]propionic acid. This was followed by reaction with oxalyl chloride to give methyl 4-(2-chlorocarbonylethyl)piperidin-1-carboxylate. Reaction with 1,2-dimethoxybenzene in the presence of aluminum chloride afforded methyl 4-[3-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-3-oxopropyl]piperidin-1 -carboxylate. Reaction with tetramethyldiaminomethane afforded 4-[2-(3,4-dimethoxybenzoyl)allyl] piperidin-1-carboxylate. Reaction with sulfuric acid afforded methyl 4-(5,6-dimethoxy-1-oxoindan-2-yl)methylpiperidin-1- carboxylate. This was followed by treatment with base to give 5,6-dimethoxy-2-(piperidin-4-ylmethyl) indan-1-one, then reaction with benzyl bromide afforded Donepezil (Scheme 3).

Figure 00030001Patent application EP 711756 describes the preparation of Donepezil by reaction of 5,6-dimethoxy-1- indanone with pyridin-4-aldehyde to give 5,6-dimethoxy-2-(pyridin-4-yl)methylene indan-1-one. Reaction with benzyl bromide afforded 1-benzyl-4-(5,6-dimethoxyindan-1-on-2-ylidene)methylpyridinium bromide. Hydrogenation in the presence of platinum oxide afforded Donepezil (Scheme 4).Figure 00040001
