EL PASO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Premier Biomedical, Inc. (OTCQB: BIEI) announced that they have filed an application with the U.S. Patent Office on a novel approach to the treatment of Cockayne Syndrome.
Cockayne Syndrome (CS) is a rare and devastating neurodegenerative disorder characterized by slow growth, premature aging (progeria), shortened lifespan, moderately to severely inhibited neurological development, hearing loss, eye abnormalities/blindness, and sensitivity to sunlight. Cockayne Syndrome is caused by an inherited gene mutation.
Mitchell S. Felder, M.D., the Chairman of Premier’s Scientific Advisory Board, and a board certified attending neurologist, stated, "The physiologic basis of Cockayne Syndrome is a dysfunction in autophagy, the intracellular "cleanup crew". Recent medical articles have shown autophagy to be a major cause of Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease and aging. I deeply believe that by beating Cockayne Syndrome we will also make major therapeutic breakthroughs against Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease, and even aging. This patent application will serve as a detailed and specific roadmap for achieving those major breakthroughs."
