Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy is a progressive neurodegenerative disease which is believed to be cause by repetitive head trauma which occurs in contact sports, such as football, boxing and hockey. The repeated concussive or sub-concussive trauma leads to a disruption of the brain's microvasculature, resulting in the under-perfusion of brain neurons leading to cognitive and functional impairments. CTE is an unmet medical need and we believe our drug has the potential to restore blood flow to the damaged areas of the brain in this disorder.
