PharmaDirections Succeeds Through its Client’s Successes: Cortendo Receives Positive Orphan Drug Opinion from EMA for NormoCort for Cushing’s Disease
Date:6/26/2012

Radnor, PA (PRWEB) June 26, 2012

Cortendo AB [ticker: CORT on the Norwegian NOTC-A], a biopharmaceutical Corporation focused on the development of new therapies in the field of Metabolic Diseases, obtained a positive opinion by the European Medicines Agency's Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products, on its application for orphan drug designation for NormoCort (COR-003) for the treatment of hypercortisolism (Cushing’s Syndrome). The positive opinion of the COMP for NormoCort has now been forwarded to the EU commission for final approval and publication in the EU community register. With orphan drug designation granted in the US by the FDA in March and now with this positive opinion from the EU’s COMP, Cortendo is well positioned to move NormoCort into pivotal global clinical trials in Cushing’s Syndrome.

Cortendo is a biopharmaceutical company that relies in part on quality consultants and CRO’s to support the research and development of its pipeline. For the past year, Cortendo has contracted with PharmaDirections for a number of key services ranging from CMC to US and European Regulatory support. PharmaDirections’ regulatory services have ranged from the successful preparation and support to orphan drug designation applications in both the US and Europe to support with both IND and CTA preparation. “Cortendo has appreciated the high quality of support particularly in the areas of regulatory, CMC, and project management services offered by PharmaDirections”, said Dr. Ted Koziol, COO of Cortendo.

“Our Cortendo relationship is a great example of a virtual company using outsourced resources to their maximum advantage” said Dr. Richard Soltero, President of PharmaDirections.
