Moleac Announces Breakthrough Results on Neuroprotective and Neurogenerative Properties of NeuroAiD

February 11, 2010

SINGAPORE, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — The January issue of
“Neuropharmacology”, publishes the article entitled “Neuroprotective and
Neuroproliferative Activities of NeuroAiD”, reporting pharmacological data
establishing NeuroAiD (MLC 601) protective effects on neuronal and brain
injuries as well as its effectiveness in neurological functions recovery.

The French research team was led by Prof. Michel Lazdunski, world-renowned
specialist of pharmacology.

The data demonstrates NeuroAiD effects on decreasing cognitive deficits,
preventing death of threatened neuronal tissues and improving functional
outcomes by repairing and restoring neuronal circuits. This is fully
consistent with clinical observations of NeuroAiD efficacy as a post stroke

NeuroAiD treatment increases survival rate, reduces infarct volume,
prevents neuronal death and drastically decreases functional deficits in
rodents’ stroke models. The data also shows NeuroAiD effectiveness in reducing
stroke severity when administrated preventively.

The results show that NeuroAiD triggers the synthesis of Brain Derived
Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which is known to promote neuroplasticity. Indeed
NeuroAiD induces neurogenesis in rodent and human cells, and stimulates the
development of new neuronal circuits of information.

Previous trials and clinical reports conducted in Asia have already
demonstrated high levels of NeuroAiD safety and efficacy in improving stroke
rehabilitation, even when taken several months after stroke onset. NeuroAiD
Stroke Treatment is already available in many countries in Asia and in the
Middle East for stroke survivors. New clinical assessments will be conducted
in France and Europe shortly on stroke recovery.

David Picard, CEO of Moleac, said “We are extremely enthusiastic and proud
to see these data published. It is a strong validation of our research of
active ingredients in NeuroAiD as well as of our efforts towards continuous
optimization of its formula. These results pave the way for new indications of
NeuroAiD beyond stroke recovery such as prevention, cognitive impairments and
dementia. It is good news for patients who are in need of treatment in this
under-served therapeutic area.”
