The primary aim of the study is to show safety and tolerability of AX200 in acute stroke patients. The results of the AXIS-study are expected to provide information for the further clinical development of AX200.

About SYGNIS Pharma
SYGNIS Pharma AG, with head offices in Heidelberg, is a specialist pharmaceutical company listed on the Prime Standard of the German stock exchange. The company is focusing on the research, development and marketing of innovative therapies for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. These include stroke, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Huntington's Disease or neurological disorders resulting from injury, such as trauma of the brain or spinal cord. All these disorders are characterised by the fact that, as the disease progresses, nerve cells die off. Although there is a great medical demand, there are currently no or only inadequate treatment options available.
In its drug development, the company has taken a completely novel approach: it develops compounds that protect nerve cells in the acute phase of the disease, and beyond that, also stimulate the regeneration of the damaged nervous system.
