Gain Therapeutics will be providing an update on our lead compound in development for GBA-associated Parkinson’s disease, GT-02287 at the Jefferies Global Healthcare Conference.
Recent preclinical studies show robust Parkinson’s-specific disease-modifying effects both in vitro and in vivo with this first-in-class novel therapeutic targeting genetically defined neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease and Gaucher’s disease, among others.
Michael J. Fox Foundation has funded and continues to support the company’s program targeting GBA Parkinson’s disease.

Eric Richman, CEO of Gain Therapeutics, perspectives on the recent Biogen and Alectos collaboration:
New treatments for genetically defined neurodegenerative diseases like GBA-Parkinson’s disease, which is a specific genetic mutation known to affect up to 14% of PD patients, are on the horizon, as companies like Gain Therapeutics and Alectos advance novel disease-modifying therapies that could one day address this significant unmet need.
As an industry leader with a solid reputation in neurodegenerative disease research, Biogen’s partnership with Alectos, announced underscores pharma’s commitment to support novel approaches to genetically defined CNS disorders and further validates the significance of Gain’s approach focused on preserving lysosomal health, which is believed to be implicated in many neurodegenerative disorders. I’m proud of the work we are doing at Gain to develop novel GBA1 small molecule inhibitors and advance treatments for these devastating diseases.
