Therapeutic Solutions International Files Patent Covering ProJuvenol© and Its Active Ingredient Pterostilbene
OCEANSIDE, CA–(Marketwired – April 28, 2016) – Therapeutic Solutions International, Inc., (OTC PINK: TSOI) announced today the filing of a patent application covering the use of ProJuvenol© and its active ingredient pterostilbene for augmentation of stem cell activity. Diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by deficient stem cell activity. The patent covers the stimulation of stem cells that already exist in the patient’s body, as well as stem cells that are administered therapeutically.
“One of the major discoveries in the area of medicine is that the body possesses its own ‘repair cells,’ which are capable of healing tissues that have been damaged by diseases. These ‘repair cells’ or otherwise known as ‘stem cells’ are currently the subject of clinical trials in industry and academia in diseases ranging from heart failure, to stroke, to diabetes,” said Santosh Kesari, MD, Ph.D., Chair of Translational Neuro-oncology and Neurotherapeutics at the John Wayne Cancer Institute and the Pacific Neuroscience Institute. “The possibility of using a nutraceutical approach to address stem cell deficiency is enticing. We are eager to address these innocuous and potentially clinically effective approaches in formal clinical trials.”
Studies have shown that patients who have higher levels of endogenous stem cell activity have reduced cardiovascular disease risk and undergo accelerated neurological recovery after stroke as compared to patients with lower numbers of such stem cells.
“At Therapeutic Solutions International we are actively pursuing intellectual property and scientific development of pterostilbene, the active ingredient in ProJuvenol©, our commercially available nutraceutical. We believe that by conducting cutting edge scientific research, we not only can achieve a strong market position, but we can advance the scientific field, which has benefits for everyone,” said Timothy Dixon, President and CEO of TSOI.
Currently the Company is also pursuing the use of pterostilbene for augmentation of cancer specific immunotherapy, for which the company has filed a patent in July 2015.
