Patient-Based Therapeutics

AcuraStem is a near-to-clinic, patient-based, biotechnology company pioneering how treatments are developed for neurodegenerative diseases — including sporadic ALS and FTD — using our proprietary, best-in-class, disease-modeling platform, iNeuroRx®, the gold standard for discovering novel, effective and broadly-acting treatments.

Patient Focused


rp4.jpgThe main reason drugs fail in clinical trials is due to an over reliance on animal models, which leads to a poor understanding of the real human mechanisms driving disease. AcuraStem are leaders and inventors in the generation of individual patient models that accurately recapitulate neurodegenerative disease processes. This, what we call our patient-based approach, leads to more effective treatments, and treatments that can work broadly for patients, not limited to rare, genetically defined subtypes.
