Alzamend Neuro Reports Third Fiscal Quarter Financial Results and Provides a Business Update


·Company had $7.4 Million Cash at January 31, 2023


·Additional Non-Dilutive Capital via Note Receivable of $14.8 Million Expected in December 2023


·Initiation of Phase I/IIA Clinical Trial for ALZN002 to Treat Mild to Moderate Dementia of the Alzheimer’s Type Expected in March 2023


·Topline Data from Phase IIA Multiple Ascending Dose Clinical Trial for AL001 in Treatment of Dementia Related to Alzheimer’s Expected in June 2023


ATLANTA, GA, March 16, 2023 -- Alzamend Neuro, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALZN) (“Alzamend”), an early clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel products for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease (“Alzheimer’s”), bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder (“MDD”) and post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”), today announced financial results for the third quarter ended January 31, 2023 and provided an update on its clinical operations.


“We strongly believe that AL001’s patented ionic cocrystal technology and the ALZN002 patient-specific immunotherapeutic vaccine candidate have the potential of treating over 40 million American suffering from Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases and psychiatric disorders”, said Stephan Jackman, Chief Executive Officer of Alzamend. “We look forward to receiving topline data in June 2023 from our Phase IIA multiple ascending dose clinical trial for AL001 for the treatment of Dementia related to Alzheimer’s. Additionally, we are about to initiate a Phase I/IIA clinical trial for ALZN002 to treat mild to moderate dementia of the Alzheimer’s type, which is expected to occur by the end of this month.”


Financial Results for Quarter Ended January 31, 2023


·At January 31, 2023, cash was $7.4 million, and working capital was $5.8 million.


·Net loss for the three months ended January 31, 2023 was $5.4 million, or $0.06 per share. This compares to a net loss of $2.6 million, or $0.03 per share, for the same period in the prior year. The net loss increased compared to the prior period due primarily to a significant increase in our research and development (“R&D”) activities for a Phase IIA program of AL001 in Alzheimer’s and activities relating to the filing of an investigational new drug (“IND”) application to conduct a Phase I/IIA program of ALZN002 in Alzheimer’s.


·Net cash used in operations was $6.7 million during the nine months ended January 31, 2023.


·R&D expenses for the three months ended January 31, 2023 were $2.9 million. This compares to $0.9 million for the same period in the prior year. R&D expenses increased compared to the prior period due primarily to increased activities and expenses related to clinical and pre-clinical studies and support functions.




·General and administrative (“G&A”) expenses for the three months ended January 31, 2023 were $2.5 million. This compares to $1.7 million for the same period in the prior year. G&A expenses increased compared to the prior period due primarily to increased marketing fees and stock-based compensation.


“We expect to receive $14.8 million of cash in 2023, as a note receivable issued to us from a prior sale of our common stock has a maturity date of December 31, 2023. While no assurances can be given that the note issuer will pay on or before the maturity date, the receipt of such additional capital would be non-dilutive, and we anticipate utilizing such capital to file INDs for bipolar disorder, MDD, and PTSD, as well as conducting Phase II clinical trials for the respective indications”, said Mr. David Katzoff, Chief Financial Officer of Alzamend. “The net proceeds (~$13.1 million) from our initial public offering in June 2021 was intended to cover the expenses for Phases I for AL001 and ALZN002. We have been able to accomplish a lot more by being innovative and excellent stewards of the capital, thereby maintaining a low burn rate and capping our workforce to four full-time and three part-time employees.”


Clinical Operations Update




AL001 is a patented ionic cocrystal technology delivering lithium via a therapeutic crystal-engineered combination of lithium, L-proline and salicylate, known as AL001 or LiProSal. Alzamend previously completed a Phase I first-in-human trial to determine the pharmacokinetics, safety and tolerability of AL001. During this Phase I trial, participants received a single dose of AL001 containing lithium in an amount equivalent to 150 mg lithium carbonate; at the dose proposed deemed appropriate for Alzheimer’s treatment when given three times daily. Currently, marketed lithium carbonate 300 mg are given three times daily when prescribed for manic episodes in bipolar disorder as well as maintenance therapy of bipolar disorder in patients with a history of manic episodes. The data affirmed that dose-adjusted relative bioavailability analyses of the rate and extent of lithium absorption in plasma indicated that AL001 at 150 mg dosage is bioequivalent to the marketed 300 mg lithium carbonate product and the shapes of the lithium plasma concentration versus time curves are similar.


Findings of plasma bioequivalence to a marketed lithium product may allow Alzamend to reduce the scope or eliminate the need for Phase 2 and Phase 3 studies of efficacy and/or safety of AL001 in such indications as bipolar/affective disorders in which lithium efficacy has been established. Bioequivalence may have utility for AL001 when seeking approval for the indications of currently marketed lithium products, and for new indications as a benchmark for safety.


The ongoing Phase IIA clinical trial, which was initiated in May 2022, is evaluating the safety and tolerability of AL001 under multiple-dose, steady-state conditions and determine the maximum tolerated dose in patients diagnosed with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s and healthy adult subjects. Lithium has been well characterized for safety and is approved/marketed in multiple formulations for bipolar affective disorders. Up to 40 subjects will complete the Phase IIA trial. The maximum tolerated dose will then be used for further studies in Alzheimer’s, bipolar disorder, MDD and PTSD. Topline data for this clinical trial is expected in June 2023.




ALZN002 is a proprietary "active" immunotherapy product, which means it is produced by each patient’s immune system. It consists of autologous dendritic cells (“DCs”), which are activated white blood cells taken from each individual patient that are then engineered outside of the body to attack Alzheimer’s-related amyloid-beta proteins. These DCs are pulsed with a novel amyloid-beta peptide (E22W) designed to bolster the ability of the patient’s immune system to combat Alzheimer’s; the goal of this treatment approach is to foster tolerance to treatment for safety purposes while stimulating the immune system to reduce the brain’s beta-amyloid protein burden, resulting in reduced Alzheimer’s signs and symptoms.




The ALZN002 DC treatment is, by definition, an individual-patient-specific therapy since these autologous DCs are administered to the same patient from whom they were removed. Each patient will undergo leukapheresis, i.e., removal and return to the body of white blood cells. This procedure will isolate each patient’s peripheral blood monocytes from the obtained white blood cells. These are subsequently differentiated outside the body into DCs that are engineered to induce immunogenicity (search and destroy capability) towards amyloid, the protein associated with Alzheimer’s in the patient’s body, but to be otherwise tolerated as natural to the body to avoid adverse side effects.


Compared to passive immunization treatment approaches that use foreign blood products (such as monoclonal antibodies), active immunization with ALZN002 is anticipated to offer a more robust and long-lasting effect on the clearance of amyloid. This is expected to provide a safe and effective treatment for Alzheimer’s sufferers that requires considerably less frequent treatment visits compared to passive immunity approaches.


Alzamend expects to initiate a Phase I/Phase IIA clinical trial for ALZN002 to treat mild to moderate dementia of the Alzheimer’s type by the end of March 2023. The purpose of this trial is to assess the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of multiple ascending doses of ALZN002 compared with that of placebo in 20-30 subjects with mild to moderate dementia of the Alzheimer’s type. The primary goal of this clinical trial is to determine an appropriate dose of ALZN002 for treatment of patients with Alzheimer’s in a larger Phase IIB efficacy and safety clinical trial, which Alzamend expects to initiate within three months of receiving data from the initial trial.
