Inhalation Therapy for Neurodegeneration
Approximately 6 million Americans (more than 30 million worldwide) have Alzheimer's Disease (AD), that will grow to 15.0 million by 2060. The cost of care in US is more than $200B a year, making this disease the nation’s third most expensive. Unfortunately, there are still no disease-modifying treatments or prevention. It is becoming clear that targeting just one pathway such as reduction of Aβ does not lead to reversing or slowing cognitive decline and progression. Effective treatment of AD will require therapy that targets multiple pathways in combination treatment.
General Biophysics together with its academic partners is developing a therapeutic approach to target microglial dysregulation. Our drug-device combination product is based on the proprietary gas mixture delivered to patients through the automatic inhalation system. The therapeutic program will include PET imaging to determine the microglial status and multidose inhalation treatment regimen.
We are developing innovative and reliable solutions to improve the availability of precious biological agents with potent therapeutic applications.
