PharmacodynamicsLAX-101, a novel and proprietary compound that inhibits certain harmful enzymes including phospholipases and caspases, represents a new class of drugs sometimes referred to as NPLs. This class may function as "neuroprotectants" and appears to inhibit degradation of brain tissue by a variety of proposed mechanisms, including stabilization of the phospholipid components of cell membranes and mitochondria, cell structures that are important in cell regulation and brain function.
