WOBURN, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aphios Corporation today announced that it has been granted Chinese Patent No. 201811111996.8 by China National Intellectual Property Administration on October 26, 2021.

According to Dr. Trevor P. Castor, President and CEO, Aphios Corporation: “This novel Bryoid, Bryostatin-23, is a highly potent nanomolar activator of α-secretase activity in neuroblastoma cell models, being more effective than the canonical Bryostatin-1 at increasing activity of all protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms, particularly the novel PKC isoforms, delta and epsilon. It thus has a higher therapeutic efficacy than Bryostatin-1.”
