Rockville's Supernus Announces New Qelbree® Data Showing Improvement in ADHD Symptoms

ROCKVILLE, Md., Sept. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

“While ADHD is recognized as one of the most common psychiatric diagnoses, affecting approximately 16.1 million individuals in the United States, patients are in need of alternative or additional options to stimulants that allow them to manage their symptoms with a safe and tolerable treatment option,” says Jonathan Rubin, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of Research & Development. “The new Qelbree data presented during Psych Congress 2023 reinforce the efficacy and safety of our novel nonstimulant treatment in addition to existing stimulant therapy in children ages 6 and older with ADHD and in a long-term setting in adults with ADHD.”

NextCure and Nordic Bioscience Publish Review Article on the Regulation of Tumor Immunity by Tumor Collagen

BELTSVILLE, Md., Sept. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NextCure, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTC), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to discovering and developing novel, first-in-class immunomedicines to treat cancer and other immune-related diseases, today announced the publication of a review article in the online journal Frontiers in Immunology, highlighting the need for targeting tumor collagen in the extracellular matrix (ECM) in the tumor microenvironment to enhance anti-tumor immunity.

“Emerging data on the effects of dysregulated collagen in the ECM show that it modulates accessibility and activity of immune cells within the TME, leading to suboptimal oncology treatment outcomes,” said Solomon Langermann, Ph.D., NextCure’s chief scientific officer. “A key aspect of what we highlighted in this review is that an expanded understanding and cross-fertilization within the fields of tumor matrix biology, cancer biology, and immunology will contribute to improving the efficacy of cancer therapeutics. Importantly, it will enable the development of new classes of therapeutics to address the unmet needs of cancer patients who do not benefit from current therapies. This is a key focus of our ongoing NC410 clinical trial.”
