The Discovery of PTI-00703 Cat’s claw (Uncaria tomentosa) as a Potent Inhibitor and Reducer of Brain Plaques, Tangles and Inflammation
Dr. Alan Snow (Ph.D. in Pathology) is a world-renowned expert in brain aging, memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other amyloid disorders. He is a former Research Associate Professor of Pathology at University of Washington, where he was an Alzheimer’s Disease Research project team leader for over 10 years. His knowledge and theories about brain plaque and tangle formation as key targets for memory loss have always been at the forefront of brain aging research. He has been awarded 18 National Institute of Health (NIH) grant awards and a prestigious LEAPS award from the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s disease research. He has published extensively and in an inventor of over 340 issued patents (USA and Internationally) on new drugs, nutraceuticals and screening technologies. In Feb 2019, he published a landmark 108-page paper in Scientific Reports (Nature journal) describing the discovery of PTI-00703 cat’s claw as a potent inhibitor and reducer of brain plaques, tangles and neuroinflammation. His is also an expert in brain tangle formation that occurs following concussions and head injury, CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) and TBI (traumatic brain injury).
