NsGene is a Danish Biotech company located in the Medicon Valley region. The Company is committed to developing novel biological products for the treatment of neurological diseases and is focusing on multiple indications with high unmet needs, including Alzheimer’s disease, neuropathic pain and Parkinson's disease.
NsGene was founded in December 1999 as a spin-off from NeuroSearch A/S [OMX CPH: NEUR]. Since its inception, the Company has been working with leading research and development teams in biopharmaceutical companies and academic institutions to solve the issue of delivering protein factors across the blood-brain-barrier and to identify novel neurotrophic proteins with therapeutic effects in the nervous system.
NsGene is committed to developing novel biologics for the treatment of neurological diseases and NsGene’s R&D activities are focused on a proprietary encapsulated cell biodelivery technology and proprietary neurotrophic proteins. Based on the EC BiodeliveryTM platform, NsGene develops implantable medicinal products that secrete therapeutic agents to the central nervous system to treat neurological diseases with high needs for efficacious treatments, including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. To fuel the product pipeline, NsGene has generated a factor pipeline of neurotrophic proteins, which have the potential to become novel CNS therapeutics that can be administered to patients as an EC Biodelivery™ product or as an injectable protein formulation.
