Harnessing the Potential of Astrocytes to Treat Brain Injuries and Diseases
Astrocyte Pharmaceuticals is developing innovative neuroprotection therapies for Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), concussions, stroke, and neurodegenerative disorders
Brain InjuriesBrain injuries are a distressingly common medical condition and one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. The brain is particularly vulnerable to injury as neurons have a limited capacity to repair.
The ScienceThe importance of astrocytes and other glia cells are only now being fully investigated and appreciated for their multifunctional role, including their critical roles in the maintenance and repair of the brain after injury.
Astrocyte Pharmaceuticals is currently investigating several programs for the potential treatment of acute ischemic stroke, TBI, concussion, and other injuries to the brain.
