Vgti Florida Researcher Invents Potential Breakthrough Antiviral Compounds For Prevention Of Mosquito-borne Illnesses - Yahoo Finance

Simple Growing Pains or Something More?

population with cases spreading across the country, particularly in Florida and Texas. VGTI Florida has filed a new patent application (U.S. Provisional Patent Application US/62/026,473) covering an invention that includes potent anti-viral compounds that are strong promoters of immunity in pre-clinical studies and are able to target a broad range of viral indications, including chikungunya and dengue. These new anti-viral agents, invented by John Hiscott, Ph.D. who serves as Director of the Viral Pathogenesis & Therapeutics Program at VGTI Florida, have also demonstrated broad-spectrum activity in providing protection against pandemic influenza and virus-induced pneumonia, both as stand-alone therapy and in combination experimental vaccine approaches. According to Dr.

Klotho: neuroprotective against Alzheimer's disease -- ScienceDaily

However in a separate study the researchers have identified small molecules that can enter the brain and increase the levels of Klotho. "We believe that increasing Klotho levels with such compounds would improve the outcome for Alzheimer's patients, and if started early enough would prevent further deterioration. This potential treatment has implications for other neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's, Huntington's, ALS and brain trauma, as well," added Abraham.
