APT Therapeutics, Inc. Develops Investigational New Drug, APT102, for Heart Attack and Stroke Patients
Oct 2 14
APT Therapeutics, Inc. is developing an investigational new drug, APT102, for heart attack and stroke patients. According to a recent study published in Science Translational Medicine, APT102 maintained optimal blood flow and reduced damage to the heart muscle by 80% in animal model studies of heart attack. Drugs commonly used to prevent blood clots for heart attack and stroke patients carry a risk of serious bleeding events. In contrast, APT102 attenuated bleeding in the study. Two of company's scientists were co-authors of the study, Soon Seog Jeong, PhD, and Ridong Chen, PhD. Dr. Chen is also founder and CEO of the company.
