Plasmalogen compounds, pharmaceutical compositions containing the same and methods for treating diseases of the aging (Thu, 18 Aug 2016)
Described herein are routes of synthesis and therapeutic uses of 1-alkyl, 2-acyl glycerol derivatives of formula I: which when administered to mammalian biological systems result in increased cellular concentrations of specific sn-2 substituted ethanolamine plasmalogens independent of the ether lipid synthesis capacity of the system.
