About NeuroBo Pharmaceuticals

NeuroBo Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is focused on novel treatments for neurodegenerative diseases affecting millions of patients worldwide. The company’s multimodal approach has the potential to address the multiple underlying mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, alleviate symptoms and slow disease progression. The company’s lead drug candidate, NB-01, for the treatment of painful diabetic neuropathy (PDN) has been shown in a Phase 2 study to significantly reduce pain symptoms associated with PDN with a superior safety profile when compared to currently available treatments. Enrollment in the first study in the Phase 3 program for NB-01 in the U.S. is expected to begin in the first half of 2020, with a target enrollment of approximately 460 subjects with PDN. NeuroBo’s IND-ready second drug candidate, NB-02, is focused on the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and neurodegenerative diseases associated with the pathological dysfunction of tau proteins in the brain.

NeuroBo Pharmaceuticals was jointly founded by Dr. Roy Freeman, professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School and renowned expert in neuropathic pain, and JK BioPharma Solutions, a biotechnology consulting company, to commercialize natural product-based research into ethical medicines.
