Oryzon Genomics (ISIN Code: ES0167733015) (MAD: ORY), a public clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company leveraging epigenetics to develop therapies in diseases with strong unmet medical need, has announced today that its CEO, Dr. Carlos Buesa, will present the recent progresses of the company at NobleCon14 -- Noble Capital Markets' Fourteenth Annual Investor Conference -- at the W Hotel, Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Tuesday, January 30th at 13:00 EST. A high-definition, video webcast of the presentation will be available the following day on the company's web site www.oryzon.com and as part of a complete catalog of presentations available at Noble Capital Markets' websites: www.noblecapitalmarkets.com and www.nobleconference.com.

Dr. Buesa will also present at the 2018 BIO CEO & Investor Conference being held on February 12-13 at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City. The presentation will take place on Tuesday, February 13th at 14:45 EST in the Ziegfield Room within the CNS/Neurological Therapeutic Area.

The company has recently reported in several scientific conferences that ORY-2001 exerts a holistic action in the different alterations seen in patients suffering from AD and other neurodegenerative disorders. Different experiments suggest that ORY-2001 acts as a disease modifying drug. In AD patients and other neurodegenerative disorders, cognitive deterioration is often accompanied by episodes of agitation, aggression, psychosis, apathy and depression. In preclinical studies, ORY-2001 not only restores memory but reduces the exacerbated aggressiveness of SAMP8 mice to normal levels and also reduces social avoidance in rat models maintained in isolation. After proving safety in the 9 month preclinical regulatory tox studies, ORY-2001 demonstrated safety and tolerability in a Phase I clinical trial conducted with 106 healthy volunteers that allowed to establish the doses for Phase II in patients. The company recently received the approval to carry out a Phase IIA with ORY-2001 in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and plans to request soon the corresponding authorizations for a Phase IIA clinical trial in patients with Alzheimer's disease. New scientific data on ORY-2001 will also be presented in two posters at the ACTRIMS Forum 2018, which will take place in San Diego on February 1-3.

Epigenetic approaches to modify the progression of various neurodegenerative diseases, which focus on the production of changes in gene expression patterns in brain cells, have generated interest in the pharmaceutical industry.
