Embodiments of this invention include novel peptides that can promote survival of neurons and other cell types. Other embodiments of this invention include the methods for the use of peptides to promote neuronal migration, neurite outgrowth, neuronal proliferation, neural differentiation, neuronal survival and/or trophoblast proliferation, trophoblast migration and trophoblase survival. NRP compounds may be administered directly to a subject or to a subject's cells by a variety of means including orally, intraperitoneally, intravascularly or indirectly via a replicable vehicle. NRP compounds can be formulated into pharmaceutically acceptable dosage forms for therapeutic use. Kits containing pre-determined doses of an NRP can be used to conveniently store, prepare and administer an NRP to a subject in need thereof.
