Innovative Therapies to Improve Your Life

Using angiogenesis to treat Parkinson’s Disease, Heart Disease, Diabetic Foot Ulcers and more.

Parkinson's Disease

Vascular disorder and reduced blood perfusion in the small capillaries of the brain lead to the slow starvation of neurons. We believe this is the initiating cause of Parkinson’s disease, as well as numerous other neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and MS.

Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Human growth factor FGF-1 is potently mitogenic for dermal fibroblasts, vascular endothelial cells, and epidermal keratinocytes which makes it an extremely attractive therapeutic agent to promote dermal healing for Diabetic Foot Ulcers and Venous Leg Ulcers.

Heart Disease and Stroke

Heart Disease and Stroke result from a lack of blood flow to the heart or the brain. Clinical studies support the angiogenic potential of human growth factor FGF-1 in stimulating the growth of new functional and stable blood vessels, including in the human myocardium.
