NeuroSense Therapeutics Ltd. (NASDAQ: NRSN) stock soared on Thursday after announcing the results of its biomarker study for treating Alzheimer's disease.

The stock traded at US$3.7106, up 35.42%, at 10:43 am ET. The company carried out a biomarker study to evaluate the potential of its drug CogniC for treating Alzheimer's. 

The study could identify biomarkers suggesting that CogniC might be effective against the disease. It targets pathways, such as miRNA dysregulation, impaired autophagy, and lysosomal dysfunction, leading to Alzheimer's. 

The study also detected Alzheimer's traits, including increased levels of amyloid-β and intracellular tau protein aggregates.

NeuroSense CEO Alon Ben-Noon said the company plans to conduct a clinical proof-of-concept study after identifying the biomarkers. He added that the study could start in 2023. 

The study used the Neuron-Derived Exosomes (NDE) technology that helps observe biomarkers alterations in the central nervous system through blood samples in a non-invasive manner.  

Israel-based NeuroSense, which develops treatments for neurodegenerative diseases, was founded in 2017 before its listing on Nasdaq in December 2021.

After further analysis, the company plans to share the detailed results on novel biomarkers in scientific conferences and peer-reviewed publications.
