OUR INSPIRATION

LEAF-4L6715 is a liposomal formulation of trans-crocetin:

 

  • Free trans-crocetin has a molecular formula of C20H24O4

 

  • Free trans-crocetin is a diterpenoid and natural carotenoid found in spices such as saffron, a constituent of the crocus flower, and cape jasmine

  • Mwchanism of Action

    Mechanism of Action

    Transcrocetin belongs to the class of molecules known as kosmotropes. The hallmark of kosmotropes is to alter the structure of water molecules in aqueous solutions such as water or blood. This altering creates channels through which smaller molecules such as oxygen can more easily travel to reach tissues where oxygen is needed.

    In the presence of tissue oxygen deprivation (hypoxia), transcrocetin enhances oxygen diffusion, thereby improving oxygen delivery to affected tissues and organs.

    Transcrocetin has been nicknamed “The Moses Molecule” because of its kosmotropic ability to part water.
