Ashvattha Therapeutics to Present Preclinical Data at the CMSC and SNMMI Annual Meetings

  • Presentations highlight the therapeutic potential of Ashvattha’s novel CSF1R tyrosine kinase inhibitor (CSF1R dendranib) for multiple sclerosis (MS) based on symptom reduction in the EAE preclinical model
  • CSF1R dendranib (H74DS3M8) clinical candidate is orally bioavailable and designed to avoid safety concerns of other CSF1R tyrosine kinase inhibitors using Ashvattha’s proprietary hydroxyl dendrimer nanomedicine technology
  • Reduction in neuroinflammation following treatment with CSF1R dendranib in EAE model demonstrated by collaborators at Stanford University using Ashvattha’s 18F-OP-801 PET imaging agent

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 23, 2024 – Ashvattha Therapeutics (“Ashvattha”), a clinical-stage company advancing a new class of nanomedicine therapeutics that traverse tissue barriers to selectively target activated cells in regions of inflammation, today announced that the company will present preclinical data at the upcoming Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) and Society of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging 2024 annual meetings. The presentations will demonstrate the therapeutic potential of Ashvattha’s novel CSF1R dendranib for MS, based on symptom reduction in a mouse experimental autoimmune encephalitis (EAE) model of MS. Additionally, the presentation by Ashvattha’s collaborators at Stanford University will demonstrate reduction in neuroinflammation following CSF1R dendranib treatment by PET imaging using Ashvattha’s proprietary 18F-OP-801 radioimaging agent.
