Progressive multiple sclerosis is associated with metabolic failure of the axon and excitotoxicity that leads to chronic neurodegeneration. Global sodium-channel blockade causes side effects that can limit its use for neuroprotection in multiple sclerosis. Through selective targeting of drugs to lesions we aimed to improve the potential therapeutic window(More)
A wider application of siRNA- and miRNA- based therapeutics is restricted by the currently available delivery systems. We have designed a new type of small molecule carrier (SMoC) system for siRNA modeled to interact with cell surface proteoglycans. This bifurcated SMoC has similar affinity for the model proteoglycan heparin to an equivalent polyarginine(More)
Living systems are mainly composed and regulated by compounds in four biochemical classes and their polymers-nucleotides, carbohydrates, lipids, and amino acids. Early combinatorial chemistry libraries consisted of peptides. The present report describes the general bioactivity and biophysical properties of a combinatorial chemical library that used glyco,(More)
