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.
Investment or collaboration opportunities
UniQuest, the commercialisation company of The University of Queensland, is seeking an investment or licensing partner.
