Roskamp Institute Reports Beneficial Effects of Nutritional Supplementation with Anatabine in an Animal Model of Multiple Sclerosis
Date:5/8/2012

GLEN ALLEN, Va., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Star Scientific, Inc. (NASDAQ: CIGX) through its wholly owned subsidiary, Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals Inc., announces that it has received important new research findings from its research partner, The Roskamp Institute of Sarasota, Florida. The Institute has completed a successful animal study of nutritional supplementation with Rock Creek's specially formulated anatabine (patent pending), in an animal model of multiple sclerosis. The Roskamp Institute has previously reported on a successful study in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease using nutritional supplementation with a specially formulated version of Anatabloc® (patent pending).

In this report, entitled "Preliminary results of the treatment of a mouse model of Multiple Sclerosis with anatabine," the researchers at Roskamp describe how they assessed the effects of nutritional supplementation of the animal's diet with an animal formulation of anatabine in EAE (experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis). This condition is induced by vaccinating mice with myelin which induces an autoimmune reaction. As a consequence, there is a severe inflammatory process in the brain, which has the effect of destroying neurons and causing progressive paralysis. In this regard, the disease model looks very similar to that which occurs in human multiple sclerosis. Dietary supplementation with anatabine resulted in a dramatic reduction in the rate of paralysis of hind limbs [see figure 1].

In addition to the better motor performance of the mice, there was evidence of suppression of the normal inflammatory response that accompanies neuronal destruction in this model. In the affected animals that did not receive supplementation with an anatabine formulation, the spleen pro-inflammatory mole
