Xadago for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease is now generating initial sales in Europe following first launch in Germany, leading to royalty income to Newron from partner Zambon. The US regulatory review was recently extended by three months to end March 2016. Beyond Xadago, Newron has prioritised development of orphan drug sarizotan for Rett syndrome (a rare genetic condition) with a pivotal trial planned to start in Q415. Partnering candidate NW-3509 for schizophrenia is also advancing.
