Clene Inc. (NASDAQ: CLNN) Continues Development of Lead Drug Candidate CNM Au8(R) for Neurodegenerative Diseases including Parkinson’s Disease

  • CNM-Au8 is an oral suspension with demonstrated activity in restoring neuronal health and function by increasing energy production and utilization
  • Treatment with CNM-Au8 investigated in clinical trials adjunctive to standard-of-care exhibits no known drug interactions, and aims to enhance function and survival
  • Nearly 90,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every year with no approved drug to slow or halt disease progression currently available
  • The Parkinson’s disease treatment market was valued at $4.61 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $11.98 billion by 2030

The result is an increase in neuronal and glial resilience to disease-relevant stressors.

In March 2021, Clene was awarded a grant from The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (“MJFF”) to accelerate the development of CNM-Au8 as a treatment for PD. The funding supports efficacy studies in a human cell culture model of PD that utilizes skin cells from individuals with…
