After a review article published this month in Nutrition Reviews.

.. After a review article published this month in Nutrition Reviews, resveratrol, a naturally occurring antioxidant, has been shown that insulin sensitivity, improve blood cholesterol levels and have neuroprotective effects in animal studies. Furthermore, the articles are saying studies in mice show that diets were rich in resveratrol associated with increased longevity. – Cocoa is a highly complex natural food that contains more than 700 naturally occurring compounds are detected with much more still, said Jeff Hurst, the lead chemist the project explained.

However, the authors are careful to point out that further studies elucidate the connection between PGRN, sortilin and TDP-43 are needed. Future functional studies require sortilin in PGRN biology development of robust rodent models for PGRN – dependent neurodegeneration, says Dr. Strittmatter. Nevertheless, our work implies sortilin-mediated PGRN endocytosis as a key way for further studies in FTLD, and possible ALS, pathophysiology. Continue reading

Two other representations describe the discovery of drugs synergy with the company HDAC inhibitor

The paper describes the effectiveness of the company’s first-in-human Btk inhibitor PCI-32765 in a mouse model of pancreatic cancer . Two other representations describe the discovery of drugs synergy with the company HDAC inhibitor, 781 and the drug bortezomib in neuroblastoma , or with inhibitors of LSD1 in glioblastoma Another presentation will describe the preclinical development of the company novel HDAC-8 isoform – selective inhibitors targeting T-cell lymphomas and neuroblastoma . – ‘We are continuing our research on the clinical indication for the drug in the pipeline to expand,’said Dr. Joseph J. Vice President of Research. ‘For instance, cancers,ring the Btk inhibitor PCI-32765 continued promise in clinical trials in patients with B-cell lymphomas and leukemias, we are now seeing preclinical evidence that the compound may also be in mast cell-driven cancers, certain belong effective pancreatic and melanoma. In addition, our HDAC inhibitor PCI – 24781 now shows synergy with bortezomib in several indications. Based on this discovery, and our previous work we plan to Phase I / II trials with PCI-24781 in combination with a number of other chemotherapeutics in cooperation with our ex-US global partner, Les Laboratories Servier. ‘.
