Sinapis Pharma Closes Series 'A' Financing Company Developing Methamphetamine as a Stroke Treatment


11/17/2009 10:40:32 AM

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Sinapis Pharma, Inc. has successfully completed a Series "A" Preferred stock offering that has raised $510,000 for its ongoing drug development program. Sinapis Pharma has discovered and is developing a novel therapeutic approach to neuronal protection using its intravenous methamphetamine technology. The company has strong pre-clinical data in stroke and traumatic brain injury animal models conclusively demonstrating a 12-hour therapeutic window and multiple pathway neuroprotection.

Dr. Donald Picker, Sinapis CEO, relates: "We are excited that we can begin the development of methamphetamine for stroke. We have a rapid, inexpensive development pathway to proof of principle in man within 24 months due to the drug's previous human use for other indications, and anticipate being the first drug to enter stroke clinical trials with solid 6-12 hour pre-clinical data."

For more information contact Dr. Picker at Don.Picker@gmail.com.
