Welcome to the Empowered Patient Podcast with Karen Jagoda.  This show is a window into the latest innovations in applying generative AI, novel therapeutics and vaccines, and the changing dynamics in the medical and healthcare environment. One focus is on how providers, pharmaceutical companies, and payers are empowering patients.  In addition, conversations are often about how providers, care facilities, pharmaceutical companies, and payers are being empowered by technology to improve patient outcomes and reduce friction across the healthcare landscape.

Mark Mortenson, Chief Science Officer, Clene Nanomedicine is combining physics with biology to develop its bioenergetic nanocatalyst drug candidates that accelerate neurorepair for patients with neurodegenerative disease. Using gold nanocrystals, the company is able to amplify bioenergetic reactions in patients that ultimately drive intracellular biological reactions. The company’s lead candidate, CNM-Au8, is a bioenergetic nanocatalyst powered to support critical intracellular biological reactions that repair and reverse neuronal damage resulting from neurodegenerative disease such as chronic optic neuropathy in patients with multiple sclerosis and the disease progression in patients with ALS.
