Dela

STOCKHOLM, SVERIGE 2 september 2020. Karolinska Development AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: KDEV) meddelar idag att portföljbolaget Umecrine Cognition kommer att presentera resultaten i den nyligen genomförda kliniska fas 2a-studien av läkemedelskandidaten golexanolon som utvecklas mot hepatisk encefalopati (leverkoma). Resultaten kommer att presenteras vid The Liver Meeting Digital Experience™ 2020 den 13–16 november 2020.

Umecrine Cognition utvecklar läkemedelskandidaten golexanolon, en receptormodulerande steroidantagonist som interagerar med GABAA-receptorn, i syfte att motverka de svåra symtom som uppträder vid hepatisk encefalopati. Efter en nyligen genomförd klinisk fas 2a-studie har bolaget nu blivit inbjudet att presentera resultaten vid The Liver Meeting, en av världens största konferenser inom levermedicinområdet. Inför mötet har bolagets vetenskapliga artikel selekterats som en ”Poster of Distinction”, det vill säga tillhörande de 10% högst rankade artiklarna, och ges därför en särskild framskjuten position av arrangörerna. 

”Vi gläds åt att utfallet från Umecrine Cognitions kliniska studie tas emot med intresse och att bolaget lyfts fram som en särskilt intressant aktör på en av världens största konferenser inom levermedicin”, kommenterar Viktor Drvota, vd, Karolinska Development.
