Operation Prion War – At Amprion, we are declaring war against prions (aka misfolded proteins). It’s a fight for our brain health, and it’s no cakewalk since we’ve been fighting this war for over a century. But working together, we’ll win the Prion War. We have to. We must find a cure for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. It’s time to stop the rogue proteins for public health. For humanity. First, let’s understand the enemy we face (or live with, inside the brain): the prions.
In this Prion War video, we explain the bad actors – prions – that drive Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other neurodegenerative diseases (aka prion diseases).
Do you know there has been no treatment for Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, despite over $100 billion spendings in drug development and clinical trials over the past three decades? The reason–because the prions are nearly impossible to detect using conventional methods. These insidious bad actors silently destroy our brain without any onset of symptoms for decades. When our body shows symptoms, it’s too late.
Thanks to the advances in molecular science, we are on the trail to hunt down the prions decades before the onset of symptoms.
For the first time in history, we can detect the prions while they are in stealth during the development stage in the brain.
How does our science work?
Amprion’s revolutionary Prion Detection Science enables tracking the three prion proteins: Abeta, Tau, and Synuclein, that drive Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other neurodegenerative diseases. Amprion’s tests can detect these prions decades before the onset of symptoms.
Team Amprion is working hard to find a cure for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s through early detection. Learn why this is mission-critical and how early testing will bring a significant impact on stopping the prions!
