Dr. Aung-Din is also active in treating varied conditions using delivery of neuro-active drugs with Direct Effects Technology, for which 8 patents have been granted to date in the United States and abroad. Direct Effects is unique in that therapeutic effect occurs through cutaneous free-nerve endings with direct afferent connections to CNS. As such, general circulation and blood-brain-barrier are bypassed, with avoidance of systemic side effects and drug interactions. Therapeutic benefits are also frequently realized within a short period, less than 15 minutes. AfGin Pharma, LLC was founded by Dr. Aung-Din in 2009 to advance this unique technology and its goal of “Enhanced Neuro-Therapeutics through Direct Effects Topical Technology.”
