About CAPSTONE THERAPEUTICS CORP. (OTCMKTS:CAPS)
Capstone Therapeutics Corp. is a biotechnology company. The Company is engaged in developing a pipeline of peptides and other molecules aimed at helping patients with under-served medical conditions. The Company entered into a joint venture, LipimetiX Development, Inc., to develop Apo E mimetic peptide molecule AEM-28 and its analogs for the treatment for Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia, Acute Hypertriglyceridemic Pancreatitis, diabetic dyslipidemia and other hyperlipidemic indications. Apolipoprotein E is a 299 amino acid protein that plays a role in lipoprotein metabolism. AEM-28 is a 28 amino acid mimetic of Apo E and AEM-28 and its analogs, including AEM-28-14, a 28 amino acid mimetic of Apo E (with an aminohexanoic acid group and a phospholipid), and both contain a domain that anchors into a lipoprotein surface while also providing the Apo E receptor binding domain, which allows clearance through the heparan sulfate proteoglycan receptors (Syndecan-1) in the liver.
