Deymyelinating disorders like Multiple Sclerosis can be very unpredictable with symptoms that can vary between individuals and change over time. The variety of symptoms from numbness in the extremities to pain, vertigo, and difficulty in walking make the disease challenging to manage.
Life for a patient with Multiple Sclerosis can be a rollercoaster of pain, depression and anxiety.
NeuroCures is working to develop treatments that will regenerate the protective myelin coating that will restore normal brain and spinal cord function.
It’s painful to watch loved ones slowly lose their mental and physical capabilities. Neurodegenerative disease is a term for a range of disorders which effect the neurons of the brain and spinal cord.
Unfortunately, there are no treatments to reverse or cure the degenerative process of neurons in disorders such as ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
NeuroCures is currently working on research that will directly impact patient care today and lead to future cures for neurological diseases.
A simple accident or sports injury can turn a life filled with hope and ambition into a lifetime of paralysis, pain, and expense. Why? If the spinal cord is badly damaged, the muscles below the point of the injury cannot receive signals resulting in paralysis.
While some individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) will suffer only mild symptoms, some severe brain injuries can lead to complete mental incapacitation or death.
There is currently no effective treatment for neurotrauma, leaving victims and their families to deal with a lifetime of suffering and difficulty managing their daily lives.
Learn how NeuroCures is translating research to innovative clinical care enabling patients to regain lost function and lead to fuller lives.
