Re-Stem Biotech Signs Research Agreement with America's First Research University to Study Progression of Parkinson's Disease

ReStem Biotech
The Research Will Also Study Related Neurodegenerative Diseases

SUZHOU, China - PrZen -- Re-Stem Biotech (Re-Stem or the Company), a biotechnology firm engaged in the research and development of cell based therapies and products for various indications, including osteoarthritis, spinal cord injury and cancer, today announced the signing of a sponsored research agreement with the first research university in the United States, ranked among the top five universities in the world, in order to conduct an academic research study entitled Molecular Pathways that Modulate the Mitochondria-Proteostasis Relationship during the Progression of Parkinson's Disease and related neurodegenerative diseases.

"We are very pleased to partner with a highly respected institution in our efforts to address degenerative conditions," commented Benno Jiao, CEO of the Company. "A treatment that could slow or stop Parkinson's progression would have a large impact on the quality of life to the millions of patients worldwide living with this disease and the many more who will become at risk as populations age."

The focus of the research will be to study molecular pathways that modulate the mitochondria-proteostasis relationship during the progression of Parkinson's disease (PD) using cell-based experimental models and mice. These pathways may be targeted for better maintenance of proteostasis and mitochondrial fitness. The goal of the study is to support the research and development of new therapeutics for delaying brain aging and the progression of PD and possibly other neurodegenerative diseases.
