Chicago, IL (Vocus) October 21, 2009 -- Data presented this week at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience highlighted the ability of a jellyfish protein “aequorin” to protect neurons after a stroke. In prior conferences, data from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee demonstrated aequorin’s ability to protect cells prior to an ischemic event. Quincy Bioscience Quincy Bioscience is a partner in the research and development of the jellyfish protein as a novel therapeutic for neurodegenerative diseases.

The data presented at the prestigious conference highlights the continuing story of an unusual compound making its presence known in the field of neuroscience. “Stroke is used in the laboratory because the model replicates a biochemical process in a few minutes what neurodegeneration takes years to do and gives us a good idea of a compound’s neuroprotective ability.” explains Mark Underwood, Quincy Bioscience president.

The neuroscience pipeline for drug development has been lacking significant breakthroughs for several years. “The bar for Alzheimer’s drugs is not very high. The existin
