Evgen Pharma PLC (LON:EVG), a clinical stage drug development company focused on the treatment of cancer and neurological conditions, has today announced that Steve Franklin, the Company’s CEO, will present at the World Orphan Drug Congress USA 2018 in Maryland, Washington DC, on 26 April 2018.
The presentation, which is part of the Pitch & Partner track of the congress, will focus on SFX-01, the Company’s lead product, in the treatment of subarachnoid haemorrhage (“SAH”). SFX-01 is currently in a Phase II clinical trial in SAH, which remains on track to report around the end of 2018.
The presentation will also refer to the ongoing Phase II trial of SFX-01 in metastatic breast cancer, which is on track to report an interim read-out in Q2 this year with the final read-out around the year end.
The World Orphan Drug Congress USA 2018, which will take place on 25-27 April 2018, focuses on all aspects of orphan drug development and rare disease research.
This will be the second international forum that Steve Franklin has been invited to address this month, having just returned from a closed meeting in Madrid where he presented the “SFX-01 for Subarachnoid Haemorrhage” clinical programme to senior scientists from pharmaceutical companies and academia, all with a common interest in the Nrf-2 pathway.
