Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute Partners with Neurotrope BioScience to Advance New Alzheimer's Disease Discoveries
Date:4/3/2013

MORGANTOWN, W.Va., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute (BRNI) at West Virginia University has entered into a strategic Joint Product Development and Commercialization Agreement with Neurotrope BioScience in the field of neurodegenerative disease. The central focus of this collaboration will be to advance novel diagnostic and therapeutic technologies developed at BRNI that have shown exceptional promise in both preclinical and clinical models of Alzheimer's Disease.

This collaboration between BRNI and Neurotrope BioScience combines the significant efforts BRNI has invested in elucidating new, paradigm changing methods to treat Alzheimer's Disease with the translational medicine capabilities of Neurotrope BioScience. The commercial introduction in the 2014 timeframe of a new, non-invasive diagnostic test for early stage Alzheimer's Disease is the first milestone this collaboration seeks to achieve. Following this, the BRNI-Neurotrope BioScience team will be initiating several Phase 2 clinical trials in this disease with novel drug prototypes discovered at BRNI. The first commercial introduction of one of these experimental medicines could occur in 2018. The scope of this effort is unprecedented and will involve ongoing contributions from BRNI research personnel and other resources within the State of West Virginia. It also presages an entirely different concept on what causes Alzheimer's Disease and how to treat the ravaging effects of this terrible malady.

Dr. Daniel Alkon , Scientific Director at BRNI, will take on the key role of Chief Scientific Officer in Neurotrope BioScience. Dr. Alkon states "We are incredibly excited to advance the scientific discoveries at BRNI into mid-stage clinical trials where we intend to investigate our drug proto
