Market Failure? kENUP and YUVEDO High-Level Online Event Kick-starts Call for Projects Tackling the Growing Threat of Parkinson’s and Other Neurodegenerative Diseases.

BERLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On Friday, 18 September 2020, YUVEDO Foundation and kENUP Foundation held a high-level online conference to kick-start an open public call for projects tackling the growing threat of Parkinson’s (PD) and other neurodegenerative diseases (NDD). Despite the predictable medical, social and economic challenges of NDDs, too little has happened in recent years to address the underlying causes of NDDs.

An expert report by Professor Maier-Rigaud of NERA Economic Consulting presented at the conference, showed that there are indications for market and regulatory failure around the development of interventions against PD and other NDDs: High risk in product development is associated with massive cost but little potential profit. This has meant that many pharmaceutical companies have stopped their R&D investment in drugs or biologicals for the prevention and treatment of NDDs.

Global Central Nervous System Diseases Drug Delivery Technologies, Markets & Companies Research Report 2020 – ResearchAndMarkets.com – Press Release

DUBLIN–(Business Wire)–The “Drug Delivery in Central Nervous System Diseases – Technologies, Markets & Companies” report from Jain PharmaBiotech has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The delivery of drugs to central nervous system (CNS) is a challenge in the treatment of neurological disorders. Drugs may be administered directly into the CNS or administered systematically (e.g., by intravenous injection) for targeted action in the CNS. The major challenge to CNS drug delivery is the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which limits the access of drugs to the brain substance.

Advances in understanding of the cell biology of the BBB have opened new avenues and possibilities for improved drug delivery to the CNS. Several carrier or transport systems, enzymes, and receptors that control the penetration of molecules have been identified in the BBB endothelium. Receptor-mediated transcytosis can transport peptides and proteins across the BBB. Methods are available to assess the BBB permeability of drugs at
