LOWELL, Mass., May 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcyone Lifesciences, Inc., a leader in disease modifying therapies for the centralnervous system (CNS) through its Advanced Precision Delivery Platforms, announced a presentation on its intrathecal delivery technology platform that has the potential to impact several CNS gene therapies and their development. A poster presentation
Delivering disease modifying therapies, such as gene therapy, through the intrathecal space, is a complex, multifactorial and promising modality. Utilizing advanced biomedically engineered, platform solutions that utilize the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dynamics to concentrate therapeutics to the targets of interest (TOIs) and increase residence time, can have significant positive impacts with both safety and efficacy for gene therapies.
"The utility of CSF dynamics in controlled precision delivery of gene therapy is one of our primary focuses. We look forward to contributing to the field of CNS gene therapy," said Deep Singh, vice president of research and development at Alcyone Lifesciences.
"It is a pleasure to apply my lab's expertise in cerebrospinal fluid dynamics to help innovate CNS drug delivery systems in partnership with Alcyone Lifesciences," said Bryn Martin, Ph.D., assistant professor of biological engineering at University of Idaho.
