Neurological disorders are diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system including brain and spine.  It is one of the difficult areas of the disease to develop effective treatment. There are more than 600 diseases of the nervous system, such as Alzheimer, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and stroke. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide are affected by neurological disorders. According to WHO, there are approximately 35.6 million people living globally with dementia with 7.7 million new cases every year – Alzheimer’s disease being the most common cause of dementia. Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder and is estimated to affect over 20 million people worldwide. At VLP Therapeutics, we are exploring the application of i-αVLP technology based vaccines in this disease area.
