Hey Schnittke-
The link didn't work...
is this the story?

Technology transfer company of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Yissum, licensed molecule called N-acetylcysteine amide (AD4) to Eucalyptus Ltd.

The molecule is an antioxidant for the prevention and treatment of Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and other neurodegenerative diseases that are linked to oxidative stress, and also has broader applications in biology. As per the agreement, the orally–available AD4 will be used for such purposes as the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, among others.

The announcement reveals that Eucalyptus has worldwide exclusive rights to develop and commercialize the molecule. Yissum, Ramot and Mor Research Applications, will receive upfront and milestone payments based on development progress and royalties from sales of final products.

Professor Ashley Bush, CSO, Eucalyptus, commented: “I am very confident that AD4 will be therapeutically useful for several major neurological disorders, certain major psychiatric conditions as well as several other biological applications. I expect this to be a rapid development project.

best,
AC

Hello schnittke, and welcome to the site. This looks really interesting: an oral medication that offers neuroprotection and with the promise of rapid development – a brilliant first post, despite the minor technical hiccup!

Here is additional information on AD-4. I found this article interesting because the research included the supplement NAC which many of us are currently taking.

There acutally wasn't any problem with the first link. A "preview.tinyurl" goes to the tinyurl site and displays the actual link so that people will have the opportunity to decide whether or not they wish to click on the link. By using tinyurl, it's possible to easily conceal a link that might take a web user to a compromised web page. However, by showing a preview of the url, it allows the user to decide if the linked page is secure or not before they click on it.

Here's a description from the tinyurl site.

Don't want to be instantly redirected to a TinyURL and instead want to see where it's going before going to the site? Not a problem with our preview feature.
