“A large body of cellular research demonstrates that Colostrinin may influence numerous activities associated with normal brain aging - including those related to genetic expression, antioxidant mechanisms, and immune function”

ReGen Therapeutics Limited ('ReGen' or the 'Company) is pleased to announce that Metagenics Inc., its exclusive licensee for ColostrininTM in North America, has now changed the recommended dosage regimen of its formulated product (CognisureTM) to one tablet per day. In North America ColostrininTM is marketed as a nutritional supplement to 'support healthy brain aging and cognition in humans' under the brand name CogniSureTM. Each convenient, chocolate-flavoured chewable tablet contains a daily dose of 100 mcg of Colostrinin. The recommended patient price for a 30-day supply is $29.95. In North America CognisureTM is available exclusively through licensed health care providers that offer professional quality Metagenics products.
Supporting mental function in the aging process is a vital part of maintaining independent living and quality of life, and brain aging may begin sooner than has been previously assumed. Fortunately, it is now recognized that neurological aging is no longer a "fixed" sequence of events. Throughout life, the brain has a remarkable adaptability to help maintain important cognitive functions like memory and learning.
"This 'neuroplasticity' of the brain may be positively influenced by environmental factors, including exercise, dietary modifications, and nutrition,” said Jeff Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB, the Chief Science Officer for Metagenics, Inc. "Implementing strategies for healthy brain aging may be indicated much earlier than current practices."
“A large body of cellular research demonstrates that Colostrinin may influence numerous activities associated with normal brain aging - including those related to genetic expression, antioxidant mechanisms, and immune function,” commented Bland. “Three well-designed clinical studies have shown its effectiveness in supporting cognitive function in adults.”
Commenting on this development Mr.Tim Shilton, CEO of ReGen said: "This is very good news. In-market feedback has suggested that this should improve patient compliance and therefore market penetration."
To date ColostrininTM is marketed as a nutritional supplement to 'support healthy brain aging and cognition in humans' in the US, Canada, Australia, Poland, Cyprus, UK, Turkey and India. LG Life Sciences, Ltd ('LGLS') has also been appointed as the exclusive distributor of ColostrininTM in South Korea subject to import and regulatory approval being obtained. ReGen are currently seeking licensees in other regions of the world (http://www.regentherapeutics.com).
