Cogentis Therapeutics

Cogentis Therapeutics is developing a drug to treat a family of neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer's Disease, and our initial target condition, Frontotemporal Degeneration, also known as Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD).

Our drug can cross into the brain and prevent the process which leads to neural decay, dementia, and cell death. Due to advances in medical technology, we can target a previously inaccessible pathway and disrupt FTD before it begins.
Cogentis Therapeutics is working on a novel and potential disease-modifying peptide therapeutic for Alzheimer's and FTD.
