About Alzamend Neuro, Inc.
Alzamend Neuro is currently working to transition two biotechnologies from the research and pre-clinical stage at the University of South Florida Health Byrd Alzheimer's Institute into the clinical stage and towards full commercialization. Alzamend Neuro has licensed both a patented mutant peptide for use as an immunotherapeutic treatment or vaccine and a lithium/proline based co-crystal therapy that may greatly reduce or eliminate the symptoms of agitation and memory loss for early to moderate stage patients.
We Invest in Innovation.
Through the licensing of promising intellectual property from internationally recognized organizations and institutions:
- We move licensed technology forward toward commercialization;
- And through the support of ongoing research, Alzamend Neuro strives to help move forward the battle against Alzheimer's.
On December 8th, 2016, Alzamend Neuro became the first biotech company to receive a letter of qualification for its Reg. A+ Tier II Offering by the SEC to raise up to $50 million. Alzamend Neuro continues to secure capital from traditional sources as well as through innovative channels.
Please join us, Alzamend Neuro, in our quest to "Make Alzheimer's just a memory".

Alzheimer's, A Medical Shortfall
In an article jointly issued on April 8, 2016, Allergan and Heptares cited currently significant unmet medical needs and a heavy economic burden caused by cognitive impairment and dementia across multiple diseases, noting that currently available drugs for treating Alzheimer's disease provide limited and transient effects on cognition. They cite projections of healthcare costs, including nursing home care, associated with Alzheimer's and dementia (currently estimated to be in excess of $640 billion for North America, Western Europe, and Asia-Pacific), that are continuing to grow based on data from the World Health Organization, Alzheimer's Disease International, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the Lewy Body Dementia Association. This medical shortfall puts a spotlight on an urgent need for development of new therapies capable of treating the estimated more than 45 million people worldwide suffering from dementia today.

USF Researcher Develops Therapeutic Vaccine to Combat Alzheimer’s Disease and Neurodegenerative Disorders
TAMPA, Fla., January 19, 2017 -- Alzamend Neuro™ has licensed the USF treatment to help advance commercialization. A neuroscientist at the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute and the USF College of Pharmacy has developed an immunotherapeutic treatment now undergoing testing for the prevention, treatment and cure of Alzheimer’s disease as well as other neurological disorders. This innovative technology has been exclusively licensed from USF to Alzamend Neuro™, Inc. Chuanhai Cao, a USF associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences and a researcher at the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute, has focused his research on peptides for use as a vaccine for Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological diseases. Dr. Cao has developed an antigen activated immune cell-based vaccine that shows promise in helping combat nervous system dysfunctions in Alzheimer’s disease. Research has shown that the therapeutic vaccine can target the toxic protein in the brain and fix the impaired immune system in several Alzheimer’s mouse models. “Our research team has developed a therapeutic vaccine that can both combat the disease and improve the immune system,” Cao said. “The most recent results have proved that such therapy can improve memory and avoid an unwanted vaccine associated reaction in a mouse model, so it could be a very promising therapeutic for Alzheimer’s disease patients.” FULL ARTICLE
