AriBio completed a Phase 2 study in 2021 in mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease patients with their lead compound AR1001, a PDE5 inhibitor with preclinical efficacy shown to inhibit neuron apoptosis, promote neurogenesis, increase neuroplasticity, and stimulate autophagy activity to remove toxic proteins.

Fujirebio continues to make advances in the field to provide fully automated blood-based tests for Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders.
“AriBio is committed to advancing not just the treatment options for patients with Alzheimer’s disease and their families, but also the development of better diagnostics and improved characterization of this devastating disease. This initial partnership with Fujirebio is the first of several we plan to launch in the next few years as we expand our clinical programs into other areas of neurodegeneration. Fujirebio is an ideal partner for us and reflects our commitment to advancements in this space. We look forward to working closely with Fujirebio to improve the detection of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases with their pioneering assays,” commented James Rock, President of AriBio Co., Ltd US Office.
