JACKSON CENTER, PA / ACCESSWIRE / December 15, 2021 / Halberd Corporation (OTC PINK:HALB) has demonstrated 100% eradication of Interleukin-12 (IL-12) from synthetic cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) in preliminary testing. Interleukin-12 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine which has recently been identified at elevated levels in patients with Alzheimer's Disease or mild cognitive impairment. Halberd's demonstrated ability to control the levels of IL-12, along with other inflammatory cytokines and antigens in CSF, is intended to slow or prevent the onset of Alzheimer's Disease and other cognitive decline. Currently, it is estimated that Alzheimer's Disease directly affects over 6 million people in the United States and over 40 million people worldwide.
Dr. Mitchell S. Felder, Halberd's Chief Technology Officer and a board certified attending neurologist stated, "Interleukin-12's pro-inflammatory action appears to increase deleterious pathologic effects by phosphorylated tau and Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha (TNF-alpha). These effects have been strongly associated with Alzheimer's Disease and other neurodegenerative diseases."
William A. Hartman, Halberd Corporation's Chairman, President & CEO, added, "We have now demonstrated that we can eradicate targeted disease antigens and inflammatory cytokines associated with neurodegenerative diseases. We have no doubt that our technology will also be successful in eliminating the balance of the targeted antigens identified in our test plan."
Hartman continued, "Once our test plan is completed, we intend to promote our technology to organizations and entities with an expressed interest in the treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), PTSD/CTE, and other neurodegenerative diseases. Halberd's advancement in the elimination of the pathogens listed above is unique in the world. Our goal is to create a revolution in the successful treatment of the causes of neurodegenerative diseases that heretofore have been considered incurable."
