MedDay Pharmaceuticals GmbH to participate at the 90th Congress of the German Society of Neurology in Leipzig, Germany

Paris, France & Hamm, Germany, September 18 2017

 

MedDay Pharmaceuticals, a biotechnology company focused on the treatment of nervous system disorders, today announces that it will be participating at the 90th Congress of the German Society of Neurology (Kongress der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Neurologie; DGN) from September 20-23, 2017 in Leipzig, Germany.

 

MedDay will be exhibiting at booth No. D5.

 

The annual DGN congress is one of the three most highly attended neurological congresses worldwide. It is the main scientific, educational and discussion platform for neurological medicine in Germany, and is one of the largest German-speaking medical congresses. The event presents new information on the diagnosis, treatment and understanding of neurological diseases.

MedDay has a pioneering metabolic approach to the development of new drugs to treat central nervous system disorders. Utilizing its research platform, SPECMET, to explore naturally occurring metabolic pathways, MedDay is able to identify target compounds that have the potential to enhance cell functioning and cell self-regeneration capabilities in patients suffering from neurodegenerative disorders in areas of high unmet medical need.

MD1003, the Company’s lead product, is a high-dose Pharmaceutical-grade Biotin (hdPB) currently in development in Progressive Multiple Sclerosis and in other demyelinating diseases. MedDay’s R&D pipeline also includes MD1103 in autism spectrum disorders and MD1105 in Alzheimer’s disease.

MedDay is dedicated to serving patients and is moving towards its goal of building a fully integrated biotechnology company, operating from discovery to commercialisation.
