Harnessing the Power of Protection

Praetego Inc. is a pharmaceutical company committed to protecting patients from age-related neurodegeneration. Our primary goal is limiting Alzheimer’s disease.

Praetego’s novel small molecules, the Amadorins, are unique in their activity to protect healthy aging by interrupting the chemistry that leads to the many diseases associated with aging. Specifically, the Amadorins inhibit the reactions that drive glucotoxicity. Our lead candidate, PTG-630, has demonstrated remarkable ability to impact many domains of Alzheimer’s pathology, in both animal models and human derived brain cells. Treatment with PTG-630 reversed cognitive decline in multiple animal models of age-related neurodegeneration. The behavioral data is confirmed by functional markers of disease.  After a successful Pre-IND meeting, PTG-630 is poised to start IND-enabling and be in clinic next year.
