A Revolutionary Drug to Cure Acquired Chronic Disease

The Toll of Acquired Chronic Disease

Millions of patients with acquired chronic disease live with debilitating symptoms and equivocal treatments that consume $4.1 trillion in annual healthcare costs (in the US).

The causes of ACD are unknown, but are generally assumed to be multifactorial, and attributed to genes, germs, or other environmental factors.

Acquired chronic diseases (ACDs) typically develop slowly and appear later in life, often after a period of good health.

They include diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, dysautonomia, autoimmunity, chronic kidney disease, chronic pain, myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome.

The Search for Acquired Chronic Disease Treatments

The prevailing approach has been to look for biomarker anomalies (compared to healthy people) and find treatments that can improve these biomarkers.

However, this approach only identifies what has changed in the body. It does not necessarily identify the root cause of that change. To date, research has not identified the underlying root cause.

Brain Signals

The role of brain signals in ACD is unexplored.

Brain Signals brain
Brain signals control function

They are circuit-specific and change constantly.

Signals nerve
Our work suggests that these signals can become dysregulated, compromising their control over function and leading to ACD.

For example, a dysregulated signal to the dopamine neurons in a Parkinson’s patient compromises their control over movement.

Our treatment seeks to restore normal signals

This can potentially cure ACD
