The Company has identified two therapeutic areas of focus:
Pain is highly prevalent in advanced cancer patients, with two thirds of this population experiencing pain. Pain in cancer patients may be caused from the cancer tumor or side effects from cancer treatments. Severe flare ups of pain are called breakthrough pain as the pain breaks through the regular pain medication. This breakthrough pain has an incidence of about 40-86% as reported in various studies. The World Health Organization (WHO) introduced a pain ladder in 1986 that has been accepted worldwide. Combined with appropriate dosage guidelines, it should be able to provide tools for adequate pain relief in 70%-90% of the patients. Despite the clear WHO recommendations, cancer pain still is a major problem.
It is estimated that 6.3 million people currently have Parkinson’s Disease worldwide. A 2004 Study estimated the number of individuals aged over 50 with Parkinson’s Disease in Western Europe’s five most populous nations (Germany, France, the UK, Italy and Spain) and the world’s 10 most populous nations (China, India, the US, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Russia, Nigeria and Japan) was between 4.1 and 4.6 million. It was projected that by 2030 this number will more than double to between 8.7 and 9.3 million. About 70% of people with Parkinson’s have tremor when first diagnosed, with rest tremor and action tremor being equally common.
