MD Biosciences Runs NeuroScientific Study: Publishes Positive Results in Fight Against Alzheimer's

Our team of neuroscience specialists ran a preclinical study with NeuroScientific Biopharmaceuticals in hopes of progressing towards a human trial later in the year for Alzheimer's. Using lead drug candidate EmtinB known to stimulate the reformation of the neuronal network and restore function of damaged nerve cells, the nerve cells were successfully able to communicate again in this study. In fact, EmtinB was able to stimulate regeneration of nerve cells by more than 300% compared to the control. This is significant in affecting synapse loss, a key contributor of cognitive impairment. Together, we are paving the way for successful therapeutic treatment options for Alzheimer's.

PNT Pig Model: Highly valuable data for translational pain research

Posted by MD Biosciences on Apr 4, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Despite massive investment in research for treatment options, there are not many effective and safe therapeutics for human chronic neuropathic pain (NP) afflictions. Options are limited due to the lack of translatable animal models, especially large animals who have similar physical and metabolic features to humans (Rice et al., 2008, Henze and Urban, 2010, Swindle et al., 2012). MD Biosciences, Inc. has developed a modified unilateral sciatic nerve PNT model in pigs that produces sustained NP behaviors consistent with those observed in human pain patients. The pig PNT model provides highly valuable data for translational pain research.

New MDB Publication: Pig open field data in the PNT model for neuropathic pain

Posted by MD Biosciences on Oct 12, 2018 10:00:00 AM

We recently published a publication demonstrating the utility of open field testing in combination with behavioral scoring in the pig peripheral neuritis trauma (PNT) model for pain. Combined together and applied in this model, they represent a powerful tool to assess the spontaneous behavior of pigs in response to pain. Rodent models are often used in pain research as they offer valuable data regarding underlying mechanisms contributing to pain, though they are limited in their translatability to human application. A pivotal benefit of using pig models is their increased translatability to the clinic considering the anatomical and physiological similarities pigs share with humans in comparison to rodents. This paper suggests that pig behavioral patterns are similarly translatable. MD Biosciences is proud to be a leader in neurology-related research, offering a variety of pig studies to enhance development in multiple therapeutic areas.
