TORONTO, Ontario and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. (TSX: PMN) (OTCQB: ARFXF), a biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of antibody therapeutics targeting misfolded proteins such as toxic oligomers implicated in the development of neurodegenerative diseases, announced today its participation in the Biotech Showcase 2022 virtual panel discussion to be held on Jan. 11, 2022 from 8 AM to 9 AM PST.
Eugene Williams, ProMIS Chairman and CEO, will participate on the panel, moderated by John Vandermosten, Senior Biotechnology Analyst, Zacks Investment Research. Other panelists include:

“We look forward to sharing our views and a lively discussion on this panel,” stated Eugene Williams. “In our opinion, improved, next generation treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, selectively targeting misfolded, toxic oligomers of amyloid beta (and not plaque forms of amyloid) will be the key to greater efficacy and tolerability compared to first generation antibody therapies such as Aduhelm.”
