Fasudil. Any thoughts

Postby MOE » Wed Apr 30, 2014 11:46 pm

According to Wikipedia:

Fasudil hydrochloride (INN) is a potent Rho-kinase inhibitor and vasodilator. Since it was discovered, it has been used for the treatment of cerebral vasospasm, which is often due to subarachnoid hemorrhage, as well as to improve the cognitive decline seen in stroke victims. It has been found to be effective for the treatment of pulmonary hypertension. It was demonstrated in February 2009 that fasudil could also be used to enhance memory and improve the prognosis of Alzheimers patients.

Hi Moe,

This is the drug that has already a practical use in Japan for brain bleeding strokes. It is now being tested by Dr. Awad in Chicago for ccm's. We are all pretty excited about this research.

He had some success with this chemical in mouse models.

Dr. Awad is coming in June to our Toronto conference and we hope to learn more about this research. If you have a chance feel free to join us.Here an article on his research.
