It is crucial to understand that the most of the damage caused by brain injury does not occur upon initial impact to the head, but rather as a consequence of secondary brain injury.

Several NCE's in Our R&D Program

The Company has designed several chemically verified proprietary NCE's (New Chemical Entities), each with lipophilic properties for crossing the blood-brain-barrier (BBB), and each with at least two of the following neuro-protective functions: free metal ion binding, anti-oxidation, and anti-inflammatory action.

In order to create these compounds, novel chemical spacers were invented by Dr. Adrian Harel. These spacers allow for the construction of complex compounds. These unique chemical spacers allow Medicortex to create medication that has the ability to stop the post-TBI cascade. It should be noted that all of the compounds could be patent protected, increasing the chances of financial success.
