   Vero Beach, Florida  --  Plexcera Therapeutics has been granted an exclusive therapeutic development license from the Mount Sinai Innovation Partners, part of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Plexcera will be able to commercially develop recombinant human acid ceramidase (rhAC) to potentially treat diseases such as Farber Disease and Cystic Fibrosis.

These two childhood diseases are caused by recessive inherited mutations in the gene encoding rhAC, and there is currently no therapy for either condition.
