Pre-clinical proof-of-concept demonstrated in a disease model
JUPITER, Fla. and BOSTON, June 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Jupiter Neurosciences, Inc. ("Jupiter" or the "Company"), today announced the publication in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease of "JOTROL™, a Novel Formulation of Resveratrol, Shows Beneficial Effects in the 3xTg-AD Mouse Model." This research, performed in collaboration with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine demonstrated that a novel, oral formulation of resveratrol, JOTROL™, was able to deliver therapeutically viable levels of resveratrol in a disease mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The results showed that JOTROL™ significantly increased bioavailability over non-formulated resveratrol and that treatment resulted in AD-related gene expression changes, as well as changes in inflammatory gene and cytokine levels. JOTROL™ may be effective as a prophylaxis and/or treatment for AD through increased expression and/or activation of neuroprotective genes, suppression of pro-inflammatory genes, and regulation of central and peripheral cytokine levels. "This study demonstrated the much-improved bioavailability and activity of JOTROL™ over unformulated resveratrol in an animal model of Alzheimer’s disease with extended drug exposure, stated lead author Professor Claes Wahlestedt, Associate Dean for Therapeutic Innovation, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Health at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine."
JOTROL™, the Company’s unique and patented platform product, is an enhanced resveratrol formulation designed to safely deliver therapeutically relevant levels of resveratrol. In a Phase I first-in-man trial, JOTROL™ was administered in ascending doses to assess safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics. JOTROL™ was determined to be safe and well tolerated at all dose levels administered and achieved blood plasma target levels 8-10-fold higher than naïve resveratrol administered in historical clinical trials. The study was financed by a grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA), entitled Safety and Pharmacokinetics of JOTROL for Alzheimer’s Disease. Resveratrol can cross the blood-brain barrier and has demonstrated positive effects on oxidative stress, inflammation, and mitochondrial function in Friedreich’s ataxia (FA) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients.
