Inotek: Fighting radicals
Free radicals, or reactive oxygen species, carry an unpaired electron and can damage DNA. While other companies have focused on ways to reduce levels of oxidants or free radicals to treat a range of diseases, Inotek Corp. believes that its focus on later stages in the cellular damage pathway mediated by these molecules will prove to be more successful.
"These mechanisms are generic, and are broadly represented in a large spectrum of diseases," said Andrew Salzman, president and CEO.
