GLEN ALLEN, Va., Oct. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals, a wholly owned subsidiary of Star Scientific, Inc. (NASDAQ: CIGX) today announced the second presentation of research findings related to its Anatabloc™ dietary supplement. A poster presentation, titled "Anatabine, a Tobacco Alkaloid, Ameliorates Disease in a Mouse Model of Thyroiditis", was made at the 81st annual meeting of the American Thyroid Association in Indian Wells, CA. The four authors, all researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, included Paul W. Ladenson, MD and Patrizio Caturegli, MD. The presentation described the positive effect of anatabine supplementation in decreasing the incidence and severity of thyroiditis in animal models of the human disease.  Anatabine is an alkaloid found in plants in the Solinacea family, such as green peppers, green tomatoes and eggplant.

Ladenson and Caturegli on their experimental research on autoimmune thyroiditis, followed by discussion.  Michael Mullan, MD, Ph.D., CEO of the Roskamp Institute, also presented on his research on anatabine in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease, which was published recently in the European Journal of Pharmacology.
