1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

Organization

 

Alzamend Neuro, Inc. (the “Company” or “Alzamend”), is an early clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel products for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and psychiatric disorders. The Company’s primary focus is Alzheimer’s disease (“Alzheimer’s” or “AD”). With two current and future product candidates, Alzamend aims to bring treatments or cures to market as quickly as possible. The Company’s current pipeline consists of two novel therapeutic drug candidates (collectively, the “Technology”): (i) a patented ionic cocrystal technology delivering a therapeutic combination of lithium, proline and salicylate, known as AL001 or LiProSal, through two royalty-bearing exclusive worldwide licenses from the University of South Florida Research Foundation, Inc., as licensor, and (ii) a patented method using a mutant peptide sensitized cell as a cell-based therapeutic vaccine that seeks to restore the ability of a patient’s immunological system to combat Alzheimer’s, known as AL002 or CA022W, through a royalty-bearing exclusive worldwide license from the same licensor.

 

The Company is devoting substantially all its efforts towards research and development of its Technology and raising capital. The Company has not generated any product revenue to date. The Company has financed its operations to date primarily through debt financings and through the sale of its common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”). The Company expects to continue to incur net losses in the foreseeable future.

Digital Power Lending (“DPL”), a California limited liability company and a related party, purchased 2,000,000 of the Company’s IPO shares on June 15, 2021. The Company’s common stock is listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker symbol “ALZN”.
