ased therapeutic potential as it targets both early amyloid assemblies as well as pre-existing aggregates.

Symptomatic Research

  • Cynapsus Therapeutics' development of APL-130277, a novel formulation of the drug apomorphine, as a rescue medication for intermittent OFF episodes in PD. APL-130277 is a thin film strip that dissolves under the tongue.
  • NeuroDerm's clinical research on continuous administration of levodopa and carbidopa through a "pump-patch." This technology could maintain continuous and constant concentration of levodopa in the blood, which should significantly decrease motor fluctuations and possibly reverse dyskinesia.

To date, the Foundation has funded $325 million in research, more than $84 million of which has been directed to over 185 unique projects led by industry partners.
