The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a new treatment that is the first to use an engineered immune system to target a specific type of protein, a condition known as NeurOMuscular Therapy.

The approval was made possible by an earlier finding that the peptide, called C-Coupled Protein (CCP), is able to bind to and block a gene known as MAPK and is able in the lab to activate proteins involved in inflammation.

It is one of the first examples of a treatment that has been approved by the FDA for neuropathy.

The peptide also blocks the enzyme called COX-2.

This gene is found in every cell of the body and regulates a number of processes including blood pressure, oxygen consumption, immune response and the body’s ability to respond to trauma and infection.

NeurOMuT therapy is currently being tested in people with spinal stenoses.

It is believed that it could be effective in treating a wide range of neuropathic conditions including multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis-related arthritis.

The new treatment uses an engineered system to deliver CCP to the targeted protein and then to target it to the damaged area of the spinal cord.

NeuromuT is an investigational drug that can only be administered by a doctor.

Dr Andrew Gopnik, director of the Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases at the University of Queensland, said the peptides immune system would target and block the protein, preventing it from becoming a toxic mess.

“The peptides targeting this particular protein are very specific,” Dr Gopnick said.

“They have to be very specific to it, and this is one reason why this particular peptide is so targeted.”

He said the treatment could be used in the clinic to treat a wide variety of conditions including:Parkinson’s diseaseNeuropathyNeurologyParkinson disease is an incurable disease which affects one in every six Australians.

Parkinsonism is a degenerative disease of the brain caused by damage to the spinal neurons and spinal cord that affects movement and consciousness.

It affects around 1.2 million Australians and costs more than $500 million a year.

In 2016, the Australian Medical Association said the condition should be treated as a chronic disease.

The new peptide treatment is being tested on people with chronic spinal stenotic disease in the US.

“It’s also being tested with people with multiple sclerosis and in people who have osteoarthritis, but we’re not there yet,” Dr Michael Brown, director general of the Association of Australian Medical Practitioners, said.

“[It’s] exciting to see this being approved for other neuropathic diseases that are also linked to inflammation.”

The peptidoid is also being investigated in people in other diseases, including psoriasis, and in cancer patients.

However, it will not be approved for the treatment of cancer until it is safe and well-controlled in humans.

Dr Brown said the drug could be a key part of the treatment plan for people who may have neuropathic pain, and to other patients with neurological or neurological-related conditions.

He said people with certain diseases could also benefit from the treatment.

There are also several promising new approaches being explored to treat neuropathic or inflammatory diseases, which he said could be the next step for neuromusculinotherapy, the new term for neuromechanical therapies.

Dr Gopniak said the new treatment could also be used to treat some forms of pain related to cancer, such as post-prostate cancer.
