Each of these diseases affects millions of people worldwide…
Could one drug effectively treat incurable inflammatory diseases such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis as well as neurodegenerative maladies such as Alzheimer’s disease?
For decades, scientific researchers have been struggling to find cures for humanity’s most crippling diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn’s.
After spending ten years of his career studying and developing a special synthetic protein, an Israeli scientist believes that he just may have a treatment for every single one of these illnesses.
Professor David Naor from the Lautenberg Center for General and Tumor Immunology in Jerusalem says that the reason his drug is effective against so many diseases is because they are all associated with pathological amyloid proteins.
In order to neutralize these inflammatory proteins, he developed the 5-mer peptide, which he believes will become a breakthrough treatment in the future.
“I believe that within two years we would know for certain if our academic product can translate into a therapeutic drug to combat inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases,” Naor told Israel21c.
“Once you control the inflammation, you can control the disease, so our target is to reduce as much as possible the inflammatory activity.”
Naor’s drug trials with animals have already proved noteworthy. For starters, he tested the peptide’s efficacy in treating rheumatoid arthritis. It completely reverse the mice’s join inflammation to normal, healthy levels, and there were no harmful side effects observed in any of the test subjects.
