About MANF (Mesencephalic-Astrocyte-derived Neurotrophic Factor)

MANF (Mesencephalic-Astrocyte-derived Neurotrophic Factor) is a protein that corrects protein misfolding, one of the major causes of apoptosis (cell death). This property provides a compelling rationale for the research and development of MANF-based products as therapeutics for human disease.  The lead MANF product development effort is centered on a therapy for Parkinson's disease, currently funded by a research grant from the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research and a secondary program funded by the Brewer Sports International developing new treatments for Traumatic Brain Injury. The Company also owns an inventory of 88 cell lines referred to as "PhenoGuard Cell Lines." MANF was the first therapeutic protein discovered from a PhenoGuard Cell Line.  It is anticipated that additional therapeutic proteins useful for various therapeutic approaches to the Central Nervous System (CNS) will be identified from the Company's inventory of PhenoGuard Cell Lines.
