Newron CEO Stefan Weber discusses the company’s Parkinson’s therapy, Xadago (safinamide), on the eve of its US market approval during the recent BIO-Europe Spring partnering conference. Newron, a clinical-stage biopharma company listed on the Swiss Exchange, is focused on the development of novel therapies for patients with diseases of the central nervous system. As well as Xadago—developed in partnership with Zambon, which holds global marketing rights to the product with the exception of Asia—Newron has three other clinical assets in its pipeline. Its most advanced is sarizotan, a serotonin 1A (5-HT1A) receptor agonist in development for the treatment of orphan disease Rett syndrome.
