ICBI’s game-changing SMART Molecule Technology Platform is capable of delivering therapeutic drugs across the blood-brain barrier and into the central nervous system to treat neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
Our SMART Molecules are ready to be tested in human patients for clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
An incremental step towards the mass distribution of our technology involves generating large quantities of the SMART Molecules by employing cloning procedures following GMP regulations.
For more details on our Phase 1 clinical trials, we invite you to view our Investor Section page to find more materials and information on our current capital raise.Learn More
Changing the course of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
ICBI is developing breakthrough sciences and therapeutic drugs to help treat the combined total of 65 million individuals around the world battling these diseases. Through the SMART Molecule Technology Platform, ICBI hopes to eradicate other brain and body diseases (e.g. neurodegenerative diseases, cancers).
Crossing the Blood-Brain Barrier to transport therapeutic drugs to the Brain.
ICBI is developing biologics that specifically target pathologic proteins in the central nervous system, thereby offering clinical potential for early diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.Learn More
Since the company’s inception in 2008, ICBI scientists have published and worked extensively to produce a body of work respected by many institutions across the world.
