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

cules, such as IFN-gamma, IL-8, IL-6 and TNF-alpha (which are all significantly raised by the induction of inflammation), were markedly elevated relative to control animals. In the mice that received the anatabine supplement, these inflammatory molecules were all reduced to normal levels [see figure 2]. These preliminary data all suggest the company's specially formulated anatabine supplement has a highly beneficial effect in this model of MS.

The report is available on the Roskamp Institute website at http://www.rfdn.org/ms_anatabine.html.

"These are encouraging results that show biological activity in a relevant animal model," said Dr. Curtis Wright, Senior Vice President and Medical Director of Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals. "Roskamp has shown that supplementing the diet of the test mice with an animal version of our specially formulated human anatabine product interfered with the myelin injections triggering the autoimmunity and inflammation that cause the paralysis. Not only did they show a reduction, prevention or delay in paralysis, but they showed a reduction in pro-inflammatory markers as well. The placebo mice rapidly developed inflammation and paralysis; the mice receiving anatabine dietary supplementation were less severely affected."

Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals and the Roskamp Institute have worked collaboratively on research relating to the company's anatabine compound for a number of years, occasioned by the Institute's interest in the effect of the compound on immune system support and inflammation in the nervous system. Inflammation and the proper or aberrant functioning of the immune system is a critical factor in a number of neurological disorders studied by the Institute, and using nutritional means in helping the immune system regain its natural balance is one path toward supporting curre
