Therapeutic Areas 

Our therapeutic focus spans a lifetime – from pediatric to geriatric – we focus on disorders where no approved therapies currently exist. 

Parkinson’s Disease Psychosis (PDP) 

PDP is a non-motor symptom impacting around half of people with Parkinson’s over the course of their disease. Patients with PDP may see or hear things that others don’t or believe things that are not true.

Negative Symptoms of Schizophrenia (NSS)
