PresSura Neuro Science and Technology Development
PresSura is developing unique therapeutics for the treatment of a number of neurological conditions. The company has completed the full scale manufacture of its compounds to GMP standard for the treatment of TBI and concussion related conditions.
Severe and Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury
PresSura is targeting the control of intercranial pressure (ICP) to prevent injury caused by brain swelling. All preclinical and Phase 1
development has been completed and an international Phase 2 program will commence early in 2018. Success in this development is expected to result in a paradigm shift in the treatment of ICP in many brain-injury related conditions.
Concussion Related Conditions
Concussive injuries are closely tied to athletes who participate in contact sports like football, soccer, professional wrestling, boxing and hockey, as well as military service men and women who sustain concussive head injuries.
PresSura has identified methods that may interfere with the development of processes leading to Post Concussion Syndrome (PCS) and the cascade leading to Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) in humans. The company has completed all the preclinical and Phase 1 development for these conditions and is currently planning for a follow on Phase 2 development program.
Stroke and Other Neurological Conditions
PresSura is developing methods to target aspects of the neurological conditions associated with some forms of stroke.
