Alzinova AB, a Swedish biopharma company developing disease-modifying treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, has recently initiated a collaboration with Captario to further optimize Alzinova's development strategies.
Alzinova is currently preparing for an upcoming Phase 1b clinical study with its therapeutic vaccine, ALZ-101 for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. The Gothenburg-based company is using the artificial intelligence (AI)-driven modeling and simulation capabilities of Captario SUM™ to facilitate decision making and optimize strategic development processes.
Kristina Torfgård, CEO of Alzinova, says, “Captario's ability to model strategic options and compare them in real-time is very powerful. The tool has helped us to generate exciting new opportunities and ideas about how we can optimize our development program and make ALZ-101 even more attractive to potential partners.”
Johannes Vänngård, CEO Captario, says, "It is a great honor to be able to support Alzinova in their important mission to develop a therapy that helps patients with Alzheimer's disease. There is much to be learned from working with highly innovative and leading-edge biopharma companies like Alzinova. Our collaboration demonstrates that Captario's offering provides value not only to large pharma companies but also to smaller innovation-focused companies in the life science industry.”
