    Zhittya is a biotech company.  They published a white paper  dated 7/18/2017.  Below is an extract from that paper.

    “Zhittya Regenerative Medicine Inc. is developing a portfolio of drugs based on the biological
    growth factor, FGF-1. This protein is a potent inducer of new blood vessel growth (angiogenesis)
    and has shown great promise in treating a number of medical disorders characterized by a lack of
    blood perfusion, including coronary artery disease, diabetic foot ulcers and peripheral artery
    disease. In animal models of stroke, FGF-1 has also demonstrated potent neurotrophic properties
    and the ability to act as a survival factor for brain neurons.
    A review of the medical literature supports the potential role for FGF-1 to be a new breakthrough
    treatment for Parkinson’s disease. As detailed in this paper, a number of studies conducted in
    animal models of Parkinson’s disease indicate that FGF-1 can stimulate the regeneration of
    dopamine-producing cells in the brain leading to an improvement in the classical Parkinson’s
    disease symptoms that these animals display.”

    This company had a one page ad in the Rock Steady Boxing quarterly publication that attracted my attention.  They are hoping to start clinical trials in 2019.  I find this information and new approach to treating PD fascinating.  Here is a youtube link with more info:


    What do you think about what Zhittya has to say?
