APT Therapeutics, Inc. Develops Investigational New Drug, APT102, for Heart Attack and Stroke Patients

APT Therapeutics, Inc. is developing an investigational new drug, APT102, for heart attack and stroke patients.

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.
