The Philippines’ top-line cybersecurity event, PhilSec now backed by CyberSecurity Philippines CERT & WiSAP

MANILA, Jun 8, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – The heightened state of cyberattacks in the Philippines calls for a collective nationwide action on the development and adoption of the latest cybersecurity innovations. While 43% of the private organisations have increased fund allocations to cybersecurity, the Philippines still needs an inclusive platform to accommodate the diverse requirements hailing from both private and public sector.

In tune with the same, the country's most renowned cybersecurity event, PhilSec is coming back to Manila on 4 – 5 July 2023. The platform has made quite a reputation in just a short span of 2 years for attracting the biggest names and leaders from across key Government Bodies, Army and private organisations. Capitalizing on repeated success, this year's edition is going to be way grander as promised by the organizing body, Tradepass.

To encourage the best participation and aid the platform in achieving its desired objectives, CyberSecurity Philippines CERT and Women in Security Alliance Philippines (WiSAP) have confirmed their full support and joined as the Association Partners for the event.

The Chairman & President of Women in Security Alliance Philippines (WiSAP), Mel Migrino after participating in last year's edition had commented, "The way the whole event is planned and organized is actually really nice, it has a very good selection of speakers and the different topics that the event wants to showcase caters to the industry really well." It's perhaps the reason why WiSAP has stepped forward as the Association Partner for PhilSec 2023.

While the 2-day event is going to power some really intriguing sessions on the most innovative, cutting-edge topics taken by cybersecurity's most influential thought leaders, there will also be a third day – 6 July 2023 that is set aside to host the region's most awaited Awards show, PhilSec Awards 2023 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The platform is also going to feature a high-voltage exhibition arena decked up with the most trending, latest cybersecurity solutions that will be projected by the industry's front runners. Organisations that have already reserved their exhibition space include Recorded Future, CrowdStrike, BeyondTrust, Fortanix, Riskrecon, AppSealing, SANS Institute, ThriveDX, Swimlane, Synology, BlueVoyant, Parasoft, YesWeHack, GTIS, Netskope, M.Tech and Symantec.

With the event going to host 700+ pre-qualified cybersecurity delegates, the above mentioned organizations will go all out with their efforts to be on top of their game. These delegates include the top C-suite professionals, policy makers, biggest buyers, heads of various technology divisions and many more key decision makers from the leading public & private enterprises across the Philippines.

One of the key speakers at PhilSec last year who also graced the ribbon-cutting for the same, Mary Rose E. Magsaysay (CICSO, Deputy Executive Director, Cybercrime Investigation and Coordination Center) expressed her amazement at the line-up of cybersecurity solution providers at the platform, "So I was going around the vendors' side and I was surprised to see that there were quite a lot of vendors. I got to talk to a lot of them and they were really different. I haven't heard the kind of solutions they had as they were very unique."

Being the foremost event in the country for cybersecurity, the platform is now looked upon for addressing critical business challenges, forging strategic partnerships and imparting the latest intel on the most pressing topics.

Experiencing the impact and glamour of last year's edition, Mary has once again confirmed her participation as one of the most crucial speakers at PhilSec 2023.

While the charm of the platform has been quite magnetic, resulting in the repeated participation from speakers, Carlos Tengkiat (CISO, Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation) part of the same bandwagon expressed, "PhilSec is actually very good because it brings people together to collaborate and also the industry players to showcase their solutions which can secure our infrastructure and keep us in line with the new developments in technology and security."

Organizer and CEO of Tradepass, Sudhir Jena expressed, "PhilSec 2023 will bring together all the best names from Philippines' cybersecurity under one roof, thereby posing a networking opportunity like none other. Also, considering the enormous response we receive every year for participating at the platform, we are quite confident that this year's edition will power a united front with the public and private sector standing tall against threat actors."

Coya Therapeutics Reports Additional Biomarker and Imaging Data Showing Decrease in Neuroinflammation with COYA 301 in Alzheimer’s Disease

Houston, TX, Jun 8, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – Coya Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYA) ("Coya" or the "Company"), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing multiple therapeutic programs intended to enhance Treg function, including biologics, today reported additional biomarker and brain imaging results from an open-label proof-of-concept clinical study for COYA 301 in patients with mild to moderate AD. Results of the study will be presented June 7th, 2023, at the LD Micro Conference in Los Angeles, CA. The clinical study data can be viewed here.

– Coya reports new data illustrating that administration of COYA 301 (low dose Interleukin-2 (IL-2)) in an open- label study in 8 patients with mild to moderate AD (COYA 301 Trial) resulted in a statistically significant reduction in the expression of three well characterized proinflammatory cytokines — Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha (TNF-α), Interleukin 6 (IL-6), and Interleukin 1- Beta (IL-1β) — which correlated with lack of cognitive decline of the patients over the course of the study.
– TNF-α is one of the main inflammatory cytokines involved in initiating and propagating an inflammatory response and its role in the pathophysiology of AD has been documented. The proinflammatory cytokines IL-6 and IL-1β have also been documented to play a central role in AD and in the development of neuroinflammation and induction of neuronal damage.
– Furthermore, Coya reports a case study of a patient in the COYA 301 trial who had pre-treatment and post-treatment Positron Emission Tomography (PET) brain scans to evaluate neuroinflammation. Meaningful reductions in neuroinflammation were observed throughout the cerebral cortex including hippocampal regions following treatment with COYA 301, which correlated with improvement in cognitive function in this patient.
– Coya previously reported that patients in the COYA 301 trial achieved a statistically significant improvement in cognitive function, as measured by the Mini-Mental State Examination test (MMSE) and no cognitive decline when measured by the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive Subscale (ADAS-Cog), and the Clinical Dementia Rating-Sum of Boxes scale (CDR-SB).
– Coya also previously reported that treatment with COYA 301 restored peripheral Treg function and numbers, significantly lowered the levels of systemic chemokines CCL11, CCL2, and cytokine IL-15, and was well tolerated.
– An ongoing academic phase 2 double blind randomized trial (supported by the Gates Foundation and Alzheimer's Association) for use of low dose IL-2 in up to 46 mild to moderate AD patients that is underway at Houston Methodist (led by Alireza Faridar M.D. and the Chair of Coya's SAB, Stanley Appel, M.D.), should report top line data in Q2 2024, and inform Coya on its strategy.

The open-label study enrolled 8 patients with confirmed presence of brain amyloid pathology and baseline MMSE scores between 12 and 25. The patients were treated with five day-courses of COYA 301 for four monthly cycles and were followed for two months post-treatment. Treg function and numbers, serum biomarkers of inflammation, and cognitive functioning as measured by the ADAS-Cog, CDR-SB and MMSE assessment tools were evaluated.

Clinically, evaluation of cognitive function showed that administration of COYA 301 resulted in a statistically significant improvement in mean MMSE scores during the treatment phase, compared to mean MMSE score at baseline (p=0.015). Consistent with the positive trend in MMSE score, mean scores in ADAS-Cog and CDR-SB scales did not significantly change at the end of treatment with COYA 301, compared to pre-treatment baseline scores, indicating no cognitive decline as measured by these validated instruments.

In addition to COYA 301 administration resulting in a statistically significant reduction of blood biomarkers CCL11, CCL2, and IL-15. Today, we report statistically significant reductions in the peripheral expression of the pro-inflammatory cytokines TNF-α, IL-6, and IL-1β. These biomarkers are well characterized in playing a central role in AD pathophysiology, propagation of neuroinflammation, and contribution to neuronal damage. The consistent reduction of these cytokines correlated with lack of cognitive decline of the patients over the course of the study. Further, the significant reduction of proinflammatory cytokine expression and the lack of clinical decline also correlated with significant increase of regulatory T cell function following the administration of COYA 301.

One of the patients in the study underwent a pre- and post-treatment PET brain scan using a radioligand for imaging 18 kDa translocator protein (TSPO), a biomarker for neuroinflammation. Increased binding of TSPO to activated microglia in brain regions is indicative of heightened inflammation and be observed with a color code with red, orange, and yellow. In contrast, images in green and blue indicate lower levels of neuroinflammation. In this patient, the pre-treatment PET scan showed high levels of TSPO binding indicative of inflammation throughout the cerebral cortex in both sagittal and coronal views, including in hippocampal regions. The PET scan after the last cycle of COYA 301 showed marked reduction in TSPO binding across the brain representing lowered inflammation. This reduction in inflammation corresponded to improvement in cognitive function as measured by MMSE scores in this patient with AD.

"We believe these additional data further support our Treg-focused approach to develop safe and effective treatments for neurodegenerative diseases of high unmet need. We remain excited about the outcome of our studies with COYA 301 in AD and COYA 302 in ALS, and look forward to the next steps in progressing these programs," Howard H Berman, Ph.D., founder and Chief Executive Officer of Coya commented.

About Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease accounts for up to 80% of dementia cases, affecting an estimated 5.7 million Americans. In more than 90% of people with Alzheimer's, symptoms do not appear until after age 60. The incidence of the disease increases with age and doubles every 5 years beyond age 65. Alzheimer's is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years. In its early stages, memory loss is mild, but with late-stage Alzheimer's, individuals lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment. It is the sixth leading cause of death among all adults and the fifth leading cause for those aged 65 or older. On average, a person with Alzheimer's lives 4 to 8 years after diagnosis but can live as long as 20 years, depending on other factors. (1),(2)
