Big Pharma and Priority Challenges: The focus of big pharmaceutical companies is predominantly on patentable molecules. This often sidelines potentially more effective nutritional or lifestyle interventions that cannot be patented, even if they prove more beneficial.

Healthcare Data Accessibility Issues: Hospitals and healthcare providers often isolate their data due to privacy regulations and fears of data breaches. This isolation severely limits researchers' access to crucial data, hindering advancements in medical research.

Individuals with Limited Engagement: The current healthcare system often delivers a frustrating user experience, leaving individuals feeling disempowered and disengaged. This lack of engagement diminishes the potential for consumer-driven healthcare improvements.

Research Funding Challenges: Researchers frequently find themselves in a relentless pursuit of funding from sources that may prioritize interests other than efficient and innovative science. This environment stifles the exploration of broad scientific questions and the discovery of 'unknown unknowns'.

Profit-Driven Commercial Interventions: Commercial intervention companies are constrained to develop only those methods that promise substantial profits. This focus limits the scope of research and development to commercially viable products, often at the expense of potentially groundbreaking but less profitable solutions.

Government Recognition and Support: The government often overlooks aging as a critical area of health that could be addressed more cost-effectively compared to the current healthcare expenditures, missing opportunities for significant public health advancements.

Intervention Development Cycle

The Optimized Intervention Development Cycle.

Imagine a system where this cycle progresses seamlessly, with minimal friction, accelerating the pace at which new interventions are developed and introduced.

Individual Participation: Individuals monitor their health metrics and intervention outcomes, actively contributing data to the ecosystem.
Professional Involvement: Health professionals collect samples and provide personalized care protocols during regular health visits.
Research and Discovery: Researchers access this de-identified data to generate new insights.
Translation of Insights: These new insights are then converted into practical, testable interventions.
Iterative Improvement: Individuals apply these new interventions, providing feedback and data that fuel the next cycle of innovation.

The First OpenCure: Plasmalogen.

Plasmalogen, essential for cell membranes and produced by the liver and muscles, declines with age and is a better predictor of dementia and mortality than APOE status. Based on promising preliminary data from animal and human studies, we developed an oral Plasmalogen supplement. Further Human trials will explore its protective effects against cognitive decline.
