Goodyer extended his research to show ELX-02 cystine decreases when used in combination with cystamine. These data were presented in March at the Cystinosis Research Foundation 'Day of Hope' meeting in Irvine, California.
The most commonly investigated agent is aminothiol (cysteine, cystamine, WR-2721, glutathione) compounds.
The COCs were then washed three times in 100 ul of maturation medium TCM-199 (Earle's salts) with 10% FCS, 0.5 mM Na-Pyruvate, 0.02 IU/ml follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), 0.023 IU/ml luteinizing hormone (LH), 1 ug/ml E2, 100 uM cystamine, 50 ug/ml gentamycin and 0% SFF (Control: Group A), 10% SFF (Group B), 20% SFF (Group C) or 40% SFF(Group D).
Amino acids such as cysteine or cystamine having sulfhydryl group could be covalently attached to NPs resulting in the formation of thiolated NPs with free thiol groups accessible for antibodies or other drugs.

Cystamine (CTM) can modify cysteine at the active site on tTG in a disulfide interchanging manner, such that the activity of tTG is selectively inhibited [15].
In conjunction with other fibrotic conditions, Raptor's acquired license covers the use of cysteamine or cystamine in the potential amelioration of progressive interstitial renal fibrosis by modulating oxidative stress.
Direct methods of preventing polyQ protein aggregation using molecules such as Congo Red and cystamine, which act to stabilise the native non-toxic conformation of the protein, prevent cross-linking of the mutant isoform, or promote clearance from the cell, have also been attempted.
In treatment groups cystamine was supplemented at three levels (0, 100, 500 [micro]M).
