Moleac Announces Breakthrough Results on Neuroprotective and Neurogenerative Properties of NeuroAiD


2/11/2010 11:30:55 AM

SINGAPORE, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- The January issue of "Neuropharmacology", publishes the article entitled "Neuroprotective and Neuroproliferative Activities of NeuroAiD", reporting pharmacological data establishing NeuroAiD (MLC 601) protective effects on neuronal and brain injuries as well as its effectiveness in neurological functions recovery.

The French research team was led by Prof. Michel Lazdunski, world-renowned specialist of pharmacology.

The data demonstrates NeuroAiD effects on decreasing cognitive deficits, preventing death of threatened neuronal tissues and improving functional outcomes by repairing and restoring neuronal circuits. This is fully consistent with clinical observations of NeuroAiD efficacy as a post stroke treatment.

NeuroAiD treatment increases survival rate, reduces infarct volume, prevents neuronal death and drastically decreases functional deficits in rodents' stroke models. The data also shows NeuroAiD effectiveness in reducing stroke severity when administrated preventively.

The results show that NeuroAiD triggers the synthesis of Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which is known to promote neuroplasticity. Indeed NeuroAiD induces neurogenesis in rodent and human cells, and stimulates the development of new neuronal circuits of information.

Previous trials and clinical reports conducted in Asia have already demonstrated high levels of NeuroAiD safety and efficacy in improving stroke rehabilitation, even when taken several months after stroke onset. NeuroAiD Stroke Treatment is already available in many countries in Asia and in the Middle East for stroke survivors. New clinical assessments will be conducted in France and Europe shortly on stroke recovery.

David Picard, CEO of Moleac, said "We are extremely enthusiastic and proud to see these data published. It is a strong validation of our research of active ingredients in NeuroAiD as well as of our efforts towards continuous optimization of its formula. These results pave the way for new indications of NeuroAiD beyond stroke recovery such as prevention, cognitive impairments and dementia. It is good news for patients who are in need of treatment in this under-served therapeutic area."
