We are very pleased that our radical, new approach to potentially slowing the progress of Alzheimer’s has passed through this critical gate.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (PRWEB) February 02, 2018
ALZYN LLC (http://www.ALZYN.com), a development stage company pursuing a unique approach to retarding the progress of Alzheimer's Disease employing naturally occurring compounds announced today that in preclinical testing on rats, their transdermal developmental product, EKD-2, was successful in crossing the skin and reaching the brain. This represents a major developmental milestone. “We are very pleased that our radical, new approach to potentially slowing the progress of Alzheimer’s has passed through this critical gate. EKD-2 may offer a beacon of hope where there currently is none”.” said Don Rosenkoetter, Co-Founder and President of ALZYN.
Ewa Bienkiewicz, PhD, Biomedical Sciences Research Associate Professor at the Florida State University’s College of Medicine, established that a combination of four naturally occurring compounds has marked ability to beneficially support the body’s response to several factors associated with the causes and progression of Alzheimer’s (Beesley, Olcese, Saunders, & Bienkiewicz, Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease 55 (2017) 1155–1166).
ALZYN has an exclusive license from the Florida State University Research Foundation for Dr. Bienkiewicz’s science and has partnered with TD Solutions Corp (TDSC) to couple TDSC’s HypoSpray® technology, a unique transdermal delivery system, with the four compounds to create a novel method to get these compounds to where they are needed: the brain.
A core developmental challenge was to get the formulation components to the brain, circumventing their mal-absorption in the gut. The HypoSpray® technology, because it is transdermally applied, bypasses the digestive tract and enables raising effective dose levels of compounds like the EKD-2 actives.
