    Several patents have been granted including those concerning

    Immunostimulants, Antimalarials and Antioxidants. For instance, compounds which consist of an antioxidant moiety chemically linked to the precursor moiety which is capable of targeting specific populations of cells by exploiting endogenous uptake systems for biological chemicals are useful in the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders.These include Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and neuropathological conditions induced by amphetamines such as MDMA. If you want to study for a higher degree or wish to collaborate on a specific project.
