Silo Pharma (NASDAQ: SILO), a developmental stage biopharmaceutical company focused on merging traditional therapeutics with psychedelic research, today announced that it has filed a provisional patent application for the use of its central nervous system (“CNS”) homing peptides to treat Alzheimer’s disease and the onset of dementia. Alzheimer’s has proven to be a progressive neurodegenerative disorder associated with the destruction of higher brain structures, such as those involved in cognition and memory function. The disease leads to declines and deficits in memory, learning, language and the ability to perform intentional and purposeful movements and is accompanied by concomitant behavioral, emotional, interpersonal, and social deterioration. “There is still an unmet need for effective methods to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease,” said Eric Weisblum, chief executive officer of Silo Pharma. “Our hope is a targeted delivery of a therapeutic agent to cells that cause disease or are affected by a disease can improve the treatment of Alzheimer’s and dementia.”
