Glycon has developed a dopamine glycoconjugate (IPX-750) to address the unmet medical needs of Parkinson’s disease and to add to the therapeutic options.
IPX-750 has been shown to reduce and prevent the aggregation/misfolding of the alpha synuclein protein.
Three different Rodent models in published studies from Baylor have reversed Parkinson’s symptoms.
IPX-750 was shown to be non toxic, to have a delayed onset of symptom mitigation, a long, slow wash out period and a possible biological reservoir buffer to eliminate ‘On-Off” fluctuations and pulsatile delivery.
IPX-750 has also mitigated Parkinson’s clinical behavioral symptoms in Marmoset model studies at the University of Wisconsin.
Glycon Pharma was founded in April of 2011.
