MODAG, a German biotechnology company, announced that it would begin an in-patient clinical trial of anle138b, a disease-modifying treatment for synucleinopathies such as multiple system atrophy (MSA) and Parkinson’s disease (PD).
Todd Levine, MD, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of CND Life Sciences was recently interviewed on Medical World News about the development of the Syn-One Test, how it can lead to better clinical decision making, and its potential to significantly impact the lives of patients with Parkinson’s disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, pure autonomic failure, and multiple system atrophy.
The two companies announced an exclusive collaboration agreement that aims to develop treatments that target alpha-synuclein, a protein whose accumulation in the brain causes several neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and dementia with Lewy bodies.
Rick Morello spoke with Kevin Price, host of the Price of Business Radio Show, about how the Syn-One Test™ is advancing the way that neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease and dementia with Lewy bodies are diagnosed.
News of CND Life Sciences’ $2.4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health is generating interest in news outlets for both healthcare professionals and patients.
Hiring slowed in the healthcare sector across the Valley during the coronavirus pandemic, but that trend is starting to reverse course, fueled in part by growing businesses such as CND Life Sciences.
Grant Supports the Continued Validation and Enhancement of the Syn-One Test™ To Help Physicians Diagnose Parkinson’s Disease and Other Serious Disorders
A group of international experts responded to the publication of the recent Systemic Synuclein Sampling Study (S4), which found alpha-synuclein to be a specific—but not sensitive—marker of Parkinson’s disease. Their letter details how the study’s methods, rather than the specificity of alpha-synuclein as a marker for Parkinson’s disease, may have produced the results.
Drs. Christopher Gibbons and Roy Freeman–two of the founders of CND Life Sciences who also serve as senior medical advisors–recently had their research on orthostatic hypotension as an early sign of Parkinson’s disease and dementia highlighted in a New York Times article.
CND will use its novel cutaneous neurodiagnostics platform to detect and measure changes in TDP-43 in patients treated with edaravone
