Cortex Pharmaceuticals Company Profile

09:02 EDT 26th September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Cortex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated is a development stage enterprise that was organized in 1987 to engage in the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative pharmaceuticals for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and other neurological and psychiatric disorders. Since 1993, the primary effort at Cortex has been centered on developing products that affect the AMPA-type glutamate receptor, a complex of proteins that is involved in most "excitatory" communication between nerve cells in the human brain. Cortex is developing a family of chemical compounds, knownas Ampakines/(R)/, that enhance the activity of this receptor. Cortex believes that Ampakines hold promise for correcting deficits brought on by a variety of diseases and disorders that are known, or thought, to involve depressed functioning of pathways in the brain that use glutamate as a neurotransmitter.
