New Solutions to Opioids
Many routes, one mission: Non-opioid pain treatment.

Currently, the Allen Research Endowment is focused on the following conditions and diseases:

Pain Management Opioid-related deaths are an epidemic in the U.S., yet pharmaceutical companies and doctors continue to prescribe Opioids for pain treatment.
We believe Opioid-related addictions cause chronic inflammation of the body’s immune system, which may lead to contracting Complex diseases and death. Therefore, we prioritize medical technologies that can reset the body’s immune system and/or cure Complex diseases.
autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune Diseases

Chronic inflammation of the human immune system is the cause of over 50 diseases including Cystic Fibrosis, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes and HIV/AIDs.

We believe Opioid-related
addictions.

Superbug Infections

Drug resistant fungal infections.

This is an emergency threat today and the next worldwide epidemic not only to humans, but also foodsupply and development.

 

Superbug Infections
Advanced Cancers

Advanced Cancers

Cutaneous metastasis occurs
when cancer cells spread to the
skin, such as with breast cancer.

Stage 4 cutaneous breast cancer
is the 2nd leading cause of
cancer deaths.

Allen Family of Allen Research Foundation Donates Oxygen Generators for Greenwich Hospital 

Through their relationship with the Greenwich United Way, Greenwich residents Michelle and Laurence Allen have donated two oxygen generators to the Greenwich Hospital for use in surge areas where liquid oxygen is not available. 

Because of their portability, they can also be sent home with patients who otherwise would not have access to oxygen. The oxygen generators (also known as concentrators) provide 30- 93% oxygen purity, enabling the treatment of COVID-19 patients with milder symptoms, freeing up increasingly limited ICU space for patients requiring critical care.

Results of a new study show that opioid overdose deaths involving more than one substance (polysubstances) are more common than opioid-only overdose deaths among youth.

A new Vanderbilt-designed prediction model may make it easier to determine which infants will go on to develop neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), a drug withdrawal syndrome in newborns that occurs after exposure to opioids during pregnancy.

According to the National Institutes of Health, opioid misuse and addiction in the United States is a national crisis, with an economic burden upwards of $78 billion.
