Our Product Pipeline

Research & Development

Our research and development efforts have been primarily focused on building a portfolio of proprietary drug candidates targeting neuroinflammatory central nervous system (CNS) disorders.

Our Focus

Our research on therapies is currently focused on developing treatment options for:

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, causing loss of muscle control. It most commonly affects people between the ages of 40 and 70, with an average age of 55 at the time of diagnosis. The average life expectancy after diagnosis is two to five years, but some patients may live for years or even decades. Currently there is no known cure or treatment that halts or reverses the progression of ALS, and FDA only approved 2 medications so far for the treatment of this disorder, both shown to modestly slow the progression of ALS.

See a webinar of our novel approach for the treatment of this disorder.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic and potentially disabling autoimmune disease, and the most common neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system in young adults. The pathological hallmark of MS is the formation of demyelinating lesions in the brain and spinal cord, with the immune system attacking the myelin sheath that normally protects nerve fibers in the brain. There are now 2.8 million people worldwide who have MS, and every five minutes, someone, somewhere in the world is diagnosed with this disorder.

Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia affects 1 in 100 people and is a chronic and disabling psychiatric illness. It is amongst the top ten causes of disease burden in working adults, and patients typically die 20 years prematurely. Antipsychotic drugs have been the cornerstone and first-line treatment for schizophrenia over the last 60 years. However, they are ineffective or not tolerated in three-quarters of patients and, even where they are effective they have limited efficacy for the negative and cognitive symptoms, and are not disease modifying.
