Tarix Pharmaceuticals' Peptide Technology Stimulates Revascularization Following Ischemia
Date:3/5/2013

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tarix Pharmaceuticals, a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel, peptide-based therapies to treat a range of critical medical conditions, today announced it has uncovered a new role for its therapeutic peptides in stimulating revascularization following ischemia. 

In models of ischemic stroke and peripheral vascular disease, treatment with either the Company's natural peptide, TXA127, or its cyclic analog, PanCyte, resulted in increased blood flow and histologic evidence of vasculogenesis (new blood vessel formation).

Rick Franklin , CEO of Tarix Pharmaceuticals, stated, "We explored the therapeutic value of our peptides following ischemia, due to their stimulatory effect on endothelial progenitor cells, which are increased naturally during ischemia and play an important role in vascular regeneration.  We were very pleased, and somewhat surprised, at the efficacy seen in these models in which we saw a return to near-normal blood flow that correlated with histologic evidence of new vessel formation. In addition, in multiple models of ischemic stroke recovery, there was significant improvement in a variety of clinically relevant neurologic measurements."

Franklin continued, "Given this compelling data, we are now planning to initiate clinical trials in ischemic stroke and peripheral vascular disease in 2013."

The transient middle cerebral artery occlusion stroke model involved fifteen animals per treatment group, and was randomized and blinded. There were significant improvements in neurologic score, forelimb placement, stepping test and body swing test, all of which are standard measurements of functional response in stroke. Treatment was begun twenty-four hours after the stroke, and positive results were detectable within two weeks, and improvement continued throughout the seven-week study. In addition,
