"A therapy that is only neuroprotective will never be sufficient to halt or reverse neurodegenerative disease progression." I came to this realization after working in the neuroscience field for over 20 years as a graduate student, as a post-graduate fellow and after working at three biotech companies, where I directed the discovery of therapeutics aimed at Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.

Neuronascent, Inc. has discovered and is developing disease-modifying therapeutics for some of the most difficult to treat brain disorders that include Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and Down syndrome.
Our lead candidate for Alzheimer's and potentially Parkinson's disease, NNI-362, not only shows efficacy, by increasing the number of new neurons that survive to maturity that is associated with a reversal in behavioral impairment, but is also shown to be safe in all FDA required GLP safety tests. This "neuron-regenerative" agent crosses into brain, following oral administration and increases the number of new neurons through a unique mechanism-of-action, suggesting a first-in-class therapeutic aimed at reversing Alzheimer's disease.
