Development of Marine Neuroprotective Drug

Development of Marine Neuroprotective Drug

The pharmaceutical biochemicals industry has made great strides as natural products are the first choice for the discovery and development of drug molecules for the treatment of various human diseases. While terrestrial organisms are currently the primary source, the marine environment is of major scientific interest due to its biodiversity, abundance, and biological potential to derive biological compounds. Furthermore, their structural and chemical properties are not usually found in terrestrial products, and their biological activity is ten times higher than that of molecules of terrestrial origin. Marine biological compounds are derived from animals, plants, and microorganisms, and each type provides a large number of compounds, including carbohydrates, polyphenols, peptides, proteins, pigments, and essential fatty acids, with antioxidant, antithrombotic, anticoagulant, anti-inflammatory, antihypertensive, antidiabetic and cardioprotective properties. In addition, marine compounds have demonstrated neuroprotective effects through various studies, mainly aimed at preventing neurodegeneration and reducing oxidative stress in the central nervous system.
