TiO2 nanowired DL-3-n-butylphthalide (DL-NBP) ameliorates pathophysiology of concussive head injury

Bethune International Peace Hospital, Hebei, China

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

DL-3-n-butylphthalide(DL-NBP)a yellowish oil-like liquid (99.6% purified) is a Traditional Chinese Medicine used for various neurological ailments since ages. We found a new role of NBP in treating concussive head injury with regard to brain pathology. The nanowired delivery of NBP is far superior than NBP alone.

Primary Application Area: Biotech & Biological Sciences

Technology Development Status: Concept

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: The drug is never delivered through nanotechnology before. So this is the 1st innovation showing a superior effects of nanodelivery over the parent compound in concussive head injury, the is most devastated form of brain injury with higher mortality rate.
