Novel Formulations for Neurosteroids

Case ID:

This invention proposes new formulations to administer and increase the concentration of a neurosteroid. This neurosteroid is intended for treatment of Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases.


Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, with existing treatments only targeting the symptoms and not the disease itself. While no current existing drugs are capable of reversing the neurological degradation caused by Alzheimer's, these formulations show potential in helping in the development of an effective treatment for Alzheimer's.
