Message from the Founder

"Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other related neurodegenerative tauopathies remain a tremendous unmet medical need and major socioeconomic concern worldwide.  Despite the strong and continued efforts from the pharmaceutical industry and National Institute of Health (NIH) in the past two decades to develop an effective treatment for AD, the results thus far have been far from promising.  In essence, we still do not have effective and disease-modifying therapies currently available on the market for AD and many of its related tauopathies, especially traumatic brain injuries like chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) observed in soldiers exposed to a blast or a concussive injury and professional athletes participating in contact sports that experience repeated head trauma.  Perhaps the primary explanation for this lack of development of successful therapies for AD is due to our narrow and limited understanding of the underlying disease process, namely, that the beta-amyloid (Aβ) protein and “Aβ Cascade Hypothesis” is central in the cause of AD.  However, the field of AD research is presently clearly in a state of flux and we have begun to understand that the alternative and often neglected target in AD, namely, the Tau protein, is equally if not the more attractive therapeutic target for this disorder.  Thus, we at Innovative NeuroTechnologies, Inc. (INT) have assembled a highly experienced and capable management team along with a group of internationally renowned scientific experts to assist in the further development of our current pipeline of novel preclinical candidates or products against the Tau therapeutic target into clinical trials.  We are very hopeful that by taking an alternative and more innovative therapeutic approach, we will ultimately be successful in our efforts to introduce novel effective and disease-modifying treatments for AD and other tauopathies, which currently is so desperately needed in the ever growing and expanding aging population in developing societies worldwide!"
