A Peptide to Protect Brain Function

A peptide to protect brain function.

A new peptide has been developed called NAP or Davunetide that shows potential for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, ALS, and Parkinson’s. Although further research is necessary, the peptide has had promising results in the maintenance and restoration of the microtubule network of the nervous system.

As life-expectancy continues to increase, the ability to treat neurodegenerative disease will affect more and more of the population.
