Granulocyte Colony-Stimulating Factor (GCSF) Gene Therapy for Stroke and Alzheimer's Disease
Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (GCSF) is a glycoprotein involved in a number of different tissues. It is responsible for the stimulation of cellular survival, proliferation, and differentiation in various cell types. This technology is a new therapeutic strategy for the stimulation of GCSF to help protect neural tissues for those with Alzhei...

Novel Peptide-Based Drugs for I.N. Delivery to Brain
Central nervous system and brain diseases impact almost 1 billion people per year with approximately 7 million related deaths worldwide. A major challenge to treating these types of diseases is the ability for therapeutics to cross the blood-brain and blood cerebrospinal barriers. These barriers make it extremely difficult to deliver therapies to t...

Carbamathione, S-(N, N-diethylcarbamoyl) Glutathioneas, as a Novel Agent for the Treatment of Stroke
A cerebral ischemia, or stroke as it is more commonly known, is a condition where there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet proper metabolic functions. Thus, this condition deprives brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients, which causes cells in the brain to die within minutes. This technology is a novel treatment for stroke, which has neur...
