About Jupiter Orphan Therapeutics, Inc.
Jupiter Orphan Therapeutics, Inc. (JOT) is a clinical stage, Drug platform company focused on developing treatments for Alzheimer's Disease as well as targeted rare diseases, such as, ataxias, lysosomal storage disorders, and mitochondrial diseases. JOT, a Delaware Corporation with its principal office located in Jupiter, FL, USA, was founded in the summer of 2015. In its short period of operations, JOT has assembled a very strong management and scientific team as well as developed a proprietary product for treatment of several indications. JOT has developed a unique platform product, JOTROL™, which is a patented reformulation of the well-known "wonder" medication resveratrol. Resveratrol has poor bio-availability in humans and at high doses, which is required for any therapeutic effect, causes GI side effects. Unlike large molecule therapeutics on the market, resveratrol, delivered by JOTROL™ into blood plasma, crosses the blood brain barrier, helping alleviate a number of central nervous system symptoms associated with many diseases. JOTROL™ unlocks the true potential of resveratrol.
