About SYGNIS Pharma
SYGNIS Pharma AG, headquartered in Heidelberg, is a specialty pharmaceutical company listed on the Prime Standard of the German stock exchange. The Company is focused on the research, development and marketing of innovative therapies for the treatment of disorders of the Central Nervous System. These include stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and neurological disorders resulting from injuries of the brain or spinal cord. All these disorders are characterized by the fact that, as the disease progresses, nerve cells are damaged and die. Although there is great medical demand, there are currently no or only inadequate treatment options available.
One of the central elements in this value-creation chain is the continued development of the existing product pipeline. This is achieved by testing the Company's proprietary compounds, which are already under development in a number of further CNS indications ("line extension"). Within specific R&D programs at SYGNIS, new pre-clinical drug candidates are identified and evaluated as well as early-stage projects are initiated for the purpose of partnering.
