NS 309 worked nicely on experimental conditions.

NS 309 is a potent Kca channel activator. I worked with 10,20,30,40,50,80,100 micrograms dissolved in DMSO. The product worked nicely in experimental conditions and would suggest to others researching Kca channel activation.

Epilepsy Poster

Epilepsy is a brain disease that affects 60 million people globally. More than 20 anti-seizure drugs are currently available, but these do not address the underlying causes of the condition. This poster summarizes current knowledge about the development of the condition and highlights some approaches that have disease-modifying effects in proof-of-concept studies.
