Patient-Based Therapeutics

AcuraStem is a near-to-clinic, patient-based, biotechnology company pioneering how treatments are developed for neurodegenerative diseases — including sporadic ALS and FTD — using our proprietary, best-in-class, disease-modeling platform, iNeuroRx®, the gold standard for discovering novel, effective and broadly-acting treatments.

Patient Focused

AcuraStem are leaders and inventors in the generation of individual patient models that accurately recapitulate neurodegenerative disease processes. This, what we call our patient-based approach, leads to more effective treatments, and treatments that can work broadly for patients, not limited to rare, genetically defined subtypes.
