New NPY research & Panion in Feminvest event 6 March in Malmö
Panion’s CEO Anja Holm will present the company’s plans, progress and outlook at the Feminvest investors event in Malmö on the 6.th of March 2018, 17.00 – 20.30. New as well as existing shareholders can ask questions and satisfy their interest in the company’s potential. http://www.feminvest.nu
“I look forward to the event”, says Anja Holm, “where I will also tell a bit more about the supportive new study from Australia, which was recently published.” This study is independent of Panion’s and CombiGene’s research, but it uses the same neuropeptide NPY as a treatment in a rat model of chronic and generalized epilepsy. The study shows reduced number and duration of the seizures in the rats and increases the knowledge about NPY’s effect in different brain regions. While one must be cautious in translating this into canine epilepsy, it does indicate that NPY has a broader therapeutic potential in gene therapy.
