STOCKHOLM, 12 September, 2017 – Promore Pharma AB, a Swedish biopharmaceutical developer of therapeutic peptides, today announced that Chief Scientific Officer Margit Mahlapuu presents the company’s project on LL-37 at a symposium for new treatments for chronic wound healing held in connection to Nordic Life Science Days in Malmö.
The symposium “Novel solutions in chronic wound healing” is organized by RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden) and Oxy Solutions AS in conjunction with Nordic Life Science Days in Malmö on Tuesday, 12 September, from 12:30 to 19:00. Promore Pharma’s project on LL-37 is presented at the symposium by Margit Mahlapuu, Chief Scientific Officer of the company.
LL-37 is based on a human antimicrobial peptide, which stimulates several processes in wound healing. In the Phase IIa study conducted in patients with venous leg ulcers, LL-37 showed good efficacy. The product candidate can be combined with standard treatment and applied by nurses or potentially directly the patient. The development of LL-37 is initially focused on venous leg ulcers and the company is currently preparing a Phase IIb study for patients with venous leg ulcers in Europe.
