Research spinoff ReXceptor gets license for Alzheimer's treatment
Date:4/25/2013

erim director of technology management and the chief executive officer for ReXceptor. Essentially, the researchers hope to prove that the medication acts on amyloid beta in the human brain in a manner similar to the one observed in animal studies. In lay terms, bexarotene functions as a kind of chaperone that escorts the problematic protein out of the cerebral area.

"This is an important proof-of-mechanism study that is a prerequisite for subsequent clinical evaluation of this drug in Alzheimer's patients," Landreth explained.

To date ReXceptor has secured $1.4 million to advance its work. This support includes a landmark collaboration between the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation and the BrightFocus Foundation to fund early-stage research. The arrangement includes The Charles Evans Foundation/Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Award to ReXceptor of $500,000 and a $250,000 contribution from BrightFocus to the collaboration with ADDF. The company also received two anonymous investments totaling $450,000, and $200,000 from Case Western Reserve.

This new funding has allowed ReXceptor to enter into a formal partnership with C2N Diagnostics, which will assist the company with the initiation and coordination of the clinical trial. C2N Diagnostics will provide its proprietary stable isotope labeling (SILK) platform to measure the metabolism of both brain-derived amyloid beta and apolipoprotein E in the human clinical study.

Haag credited the university's Office of Research and Technology Management, along with the medical school's chief translational officers and Council to Advance Human Health, with providing critical guidance and support in bringing the company to this stage.
