Glycomyr is developing products based on vitamin D to treat and prevent a number of human and animal diseases. The basis for these products is a plant that contains a number of vitamin D-related compounds that have been shown to have unique activities affecting both calcium metabolism and cell growth. These plant compounds are glycosides of the hormonal form of vitamin D, known as 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D and its precursor, 25-hydroxyvitamin D. Glycomyr has made progress in isolating these compounds and has tested crude preparations in both animal productions systems and in cell culture. Glycomyr has also succeeded in synthesizing pure and stable forms of these compounds for investigational use. Glycomyr’s competitive strength is identifying a raw plant material with robust bioactivity and synthesized analogs of those compounds that can be developed for a variety of applications and products to use these use theseVitamin D compounds to improve animal and human health.
