MEQUON, Wis., Dec. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - ENDECE Neural, LLC (www.endeceneural.com) announced today that the company will be presenting at the 2013 Biotech Showcase in San Francisco, California, January 8th.
The ENDECE Neural presentation, to be given by Dr. James Yarger, CEO, will discuss the company's novel therapeutic for directly inducing remyelination of demyelinated axons to treat neurological diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
Currently there are no drugs commercially available for remyelination in MS, or any other disease associated with demyelination. ENDECE Neural may have one of the first compounds with the ability to directly induce remyelination.
"This novel therapeutic could be used either alone or in combination with current immunosuppressant/anti-inflammation therapies," says Dr. Yarger. "We are looking to partner with or license this exciting opportunity to potentially restore function, mobility and independence to those fighting MS."
