Inhibition of the Egr2 promoter Antisense RNA with oligonucleotide GapmeRs as novel RNA therapy for human neuropathies
Overview Peripheral neuropathy can be caused by trauma, disease, or chemotherapy. We have developed sustained-release formulations that treat human neuropathies by prompting remyelination of the damaged nerves. The formulations are delivered by injection at the site of nerve damage, using a polymeric gel. Market Opportunity Peripheral nerve damage...

Potential new targets for ALS
Overview Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a devastating disease that is progressive, invariably fatal, and untreatable. Our invention features isolated Cyp4gl polypeptides with mutations at various key amino acid positions that suppress the effects and progress of ALS, as well as mutated polynucleotides that encode these polypeptides. Our invention...

New use of CsA-type drugs for the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease
­Novel Method Repurposes CsA-Type Compounds to Treat Neurodegenerative Disease Overview Alzheimer’s disease remains a challenging disorder for drug development, with many candidate drugs failing clinical trials. Our novel method repurposes camphorsulfonic acid (CsA)-type compounds to treat early-stage Alzheimer’s disease, as well as...

A novel nucleocytoplasmic regulator of autophagy-associated transcription factors stimulates autophagy and prevents the proteostatic decline associated with neurodegeneration
­Activating Autophagy to Prevent Neurodegeneration and Extend Lifespan Overview Decline in proteostasis is a hallmark of age-related neurodegerative disease such as Alzheimer’s Disease. Autophagy is the process by which cells rid themselves of damaged or otherwise unnecessary material, which then moves to the lysosome and degrades. Pharmacologic...
