Investment summary

Newron's lead product, Xadago (safinamide) for Parkinson's disease (PD) has been launched in 12 European countries and is generating sales through commercial partner Zambon (ex-Japan/Asia). Additionally, Xadago was recently launched in the US by sublicensee US WorldMeds. Other pipeline assets include sarizotan for Rett syndrome, the pivotal trial STARS (placebo-controlled Phase II/III trial) to investigate breathing disorders associated with RS has initiated. Full data from the Phase II study of evenamide as an add-on to atypical antipsychotics, published in March 2017, demonstrated efficacy in terms of improvement on the symptoms of schizophrenia assessed by the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS). Newron raised CHF27m in 2017 in a private placement that it expects will help fund operations through 2019.

Industry outlook

Parkinson's disease is a growing market. Xadago could have a unique position, with once-a-day dosing and a clean safety profile.
