Jellyfish Protein Shows Potential to Help With Memory
Date:10/15/2008

BOSTON, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Quincy Bioscience (Madison, WI) announces that Prevagen(R) (http://www.prevagen.com), a dietary supplement consisting of the jellyfish protein apoaequorin, has displayed great potential to improve memory in healthy human subjects tested. The Prevagen Memory Study included 56 participants that completed a 30-day open-label study (10 mg/day). The findings suggest that supplementation with apoaequorin, a well-known calcium-binding protein, might address the age-related deficits in memory that are often affiliated with decreasing calcium homeostasis.

Quincy Bioscience has been researching the jellyfish protein for the past twelve years and has had Prevagen in the marketplace for just over one year. Their research showed that 57% of the participants experienced overall memory improvement in 30 days. 66% of participants reported better word recall in conversation within 30 days and many participants showed memory improvement in as few as 8 days. Participants' ages averaged 56 years (20-78 yrs.) and 66% were female and 34% male. All participants were in good health. There were no dropouts from the study due to side effects.

"Too much calcium within a brain cell impairs its function and Prevagen works to regulate it," says Mark Underwood, co-founder of Quincy Bioscience. "Unfortunately, we lose our ability to regulate brain cell calcium as we age. At about forty, our brains produce fewer calcium-binding proteins. This causes calcium levels to rise throughout the nervous system. Neurons are flooded with dangerous levels of calcium and our brains slow down. We are excited to see these results."

"Apoaequorin, with its ability to bind to and lower calcium levels, can be used as a replacement for our own missing calcium-binding proteins and thereby slow age-related loss of cognitive function, memory, and alertness. Additional clinical trials are planned," added Underwo
