The company received this week the approval from the Spanish Drug Agency (AEMPS) to start a Phase IIA clinical trial of its epigenetic drug ORY-2001 in Multiple Sclerosis. The Company is finalizing the design of a second Phase IIA clinical trial with ORY-2001, this time in Alzheimer's disease. The CEO of the company will also attend the conference.

The Company will also participate at the SfN's 47th annual meeting (Neuroscience 2017), the world largest conference in Neuroscience.

Finally, Dr. Roger Bullock will also attend the CNS-Summit in Boca Raton, Florida on November 16-19, where he will participate as panelist in one of the sessions.
