Nutra Pharma Corp., a biotechnology company that is developing drugs for HIV and Multiple Sclerosis has today announced that it has sponsored AMNhelp.com, a website dedicated to educating patients and providing information about Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN).
“Although there is currently no approved treatment for AMN, we felt that it is important to educate patients about this disease and to provide information about current treatment research,” explained Rik J Deitsch, Chairman and CEO of Nutra Pharma Corporation. “The sponsorship of AMNhelp.com coincides with our progression into a Phase IIb human clinical trial for the treatment of AMN,” he added.
The AMNhelp.com website will feature information about Adrenomyeloneuropathy: its symptoms, diagnosis, treatment research, and links to regional, national, and international support groups.
“AMN is a rare inherited metabolic disorder, but still interests the wider neurologic community because of its similarities to Multiple Sclerosis,” commented Stewart Lonky, MD, a member of the board of directors of Nutra Pharma Corporation.“AMN is often misdiagnosed and confused with Multiple Sclerosis and it is our hope that the AMNhelp.com website will help educate the public about the differences between the two diseases,” he concluded.
RPI-78M is ReceptoPharm's lead drug candidate for the treatment of neurological and autoimmune disorders. The drug has already completed pre-clinical testing and a Phase I/IIa human trial in AMN. In October, ReceptoPharm received Ethics Committee approval in the UK to begin its Phase IIb human clinical trial for the treatment of AMN.
