NEWS RELEASE (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE)

Subject:      Houston public charity to evaluate effects of the sugar trehalose on devastating Huntington's disease (HD).

May 5, 2008 (Houston) Huntington's is one of the most devastating health challenges known to humans. Huntington's is hereditary and children normally have the gene but do not develop the tremors until later in life. There is no known cure for this deadly neurodegenerative disease.

J. C. Spencer, CEO of The Endowment for Medical Research announced that the non-profit organization is seeking major funding for Huntington's clinical trials.  "Meanwhile, we have designed a low budget self funding, self or family evaluation system, to gather needed data showing benefits from the sugar trehalose."

Laboratory animal research using trehalose has already shown that this sugar may be beneficial in some neurodegenerative diseases.  Other research indicates that it may strengthen cell membrane under certain conditions.

The Endowment for Medical Research hopes to gather data from a few thousand participants over an extended period of time to provide important information toward future pilot surveys and clinical studies and published papers.

Trehalose is found in nature and has been tested to produce lower insulin and blood glucose responses than regular sugar.  Trehalose is two glucose molecules uniquely bonded together resulting in a sugar about 45% as sweet as table sugar with a very clean taste and can replace the sugar in your sugar bowl.

The Endowment for Medical Research is a 501(c)(3) faith-based research and educational public charity based in Houston.  The organization has conducted nutritional pilot surveys throughout the US and some foreign countries.  More information and forms to participate in the study are available at www.endowmentmed.org.
