PureTech Health PLC - clinical-stage biotherapeutics company - Investee Akili Interactive will collaborate with Weill Cornell Medicine, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Vanderbilt University Medical Center to evaluate Akili digital therapeutic AKL-T01 as a treatment for patients with cognitive dysfunction following Covid-19. There are currently no approved treatments for cognitive impairments in Covid-19 survivors.
Under each collaboration, PureTech says Akili will work with research teams at each institution to conduct two separate randomised, controlled clinical studies evaluating AKL-T01's ability to target and improve cognitive functioning in Covid-19 survivors. AKL-T01 is the first and only digital therapeutic designed to improve attention function. The partners aim to begin clinical recruitment for the studies in the next month.
