Developing novel treatments for neurodegenerative disorders

Neuro-Bio is a privately-owned biotech out of Oxford University with a therapeutic focus on neurodegenerative disease. The company has discovered a novel 14 amino acid bioactive peptide (T14) derived from the C terminus of AChE. T14 is neurotoxic in the adult brain and published data shows it to be a potential key driver of neurodegeneration. This new distinct mechanism is being exploited by Neuro-Bio to discover oral drugs to treat Alzheimer's disease. T14 can also be measured in blood and Neuro-Bio is developing this biomarker as a companion diagnostic.
