Cures Within Reach started repurposing drugs, devices and nutriceuticals by accident. We funded one many studies repurposing Thalidomide for multiple myeloma in 2000. We selected that Rediscovery Research project for funding, not because it was a drug repurposing project, but because it was the most promising project to accelerate the search for a cure from among a group of projects, all the rest of which were New Discovery Research. In 2000, there was almost nothing published in the news or scientific literature about repurposing. Had we shouted "Rediscovery Research" in the Grand Canyon of the medical research world in 2000, there would have been no echo!
Cures Within Reach is a medical research non-profit organization, helping patients since 2005 by repurposing drugs and devices to quickly deliver safe and affordable treatments and cures for both common and rare disorders without currently effective treatments.Read more
