Quincy Bioscience

Key research findings:

•The double blind, placebo-controlled study of 218 adults demonstrated apoaequorin was able to significantly improve executive function, word recall, and short-term memory compared to placebo over 90 days.
•The apoaequorin arm was able to reduce the total number of errors in a measure of cognitive function by 19 percent compared to baseline and significantly fewer errors than placebo.
• In a task requiring participants to learn a grocery shopping list, the apoaequorin group was able to recall significantly more items at Day 90 compared to baseline.
Quincy Bioscience is advancing Alzheimer’s research by utilizing a calcium-binding protein called apoaequorin which neutralizes excessive levels of calcium in the neurons that would otherwise destroy the cell.

“The Alzheimer’s research community has known for some time that unregulated calcium is a culprit.” explains Underwood. “There just haven’t been any solutions to address this cause. Our research is one very promising step which demonstrates that we can help people with memory concerns. Our next step is a larger scale study specifically targeting the Alzheimer’s population. We are very hopeful based on these results.”
