Reducing brain damage post-stroke

Researchers at The University of Queensland have developed a neuroprotective therapeutic to apply in the treatment of brain injury following a stroke. The agent is a peptide-based inhibitor.

Unique selling point/competitive advantage

When administered more than 4 hours after stroke in a rodent model, a single dose of the therapeutic demonstrates significant reduction in infarct size and improvement in motor coordination and neurological score.
