How do you pronounce "GLIACIN"?  What's in the name?

GLIACINTM is pronounced "glee-a-sin."  The name "GLIACINTM" comes from combining the words "glia" and "indomethacin."  Glia are the "support cells" of the central and peripheral nervous system.  Glial cells are often overlooked (compared to neurons) but their role in proper functioning of the nervous system can not be any more critical.  Ongoing research, in fact, shows that proper glial cell function is required for optimal neuronal firing, signal transduction, nutrition, physical support and modulation.  Examples of glial cells in the central nervous system are astrocytes and oligodendrocytes.  Schwann cells and satellite cells are examples of glial cells in the peripheral nervous system.  Indomethacin is a medicine developed in the 1960's, but it is still commonly used today (particularly headache medicine).  GLIACINTM was designed to mimic some of the key physiologic effects of indomethacin without the side effects.
