Accera Inc. (Broomfield, Colo.), a healthcare company focused on acute and chronic neurodegenerative diseases, will receive investment from Nestlé Health Science SA (Vevey, Switzerland) to develop and commercialize Axona, a prescription medical food for mild to moderate Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Luis Cantarell, president and CEO of Nestlé Health Science, will join Accera’s board of directors. According to the Axona website, AD patients suffer a dramatic drop in the brain’s ability to metabolize glucose; Axona addresses energy deficiencies in the brain by providing an alternative source of energy. In clinical trials, patients on Axona experienced cognitive improvement in 45 days. Nestlé Health Science is focused on developing science-based personalized nutritional solutions for chronic medical conditions.
