BALTIMORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MyMD Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MYMD) (“MyMD” or “the Company”), a clinical stage pharmaceutical company committed to extending healthy lifespan, will present at the H.C. Wainwright 23rd Annual Global Investment Conference being held virtually September 13-15, 2021.
MyMD’s presentation video will be available for viewing on demand starting at 7:00 am ET on Monday, September 13th, and management will be available for one-on-one meetings with investors upon request. Investors may register for the conference at the event website. The live and archived webcast will be available for 90 days after the event.
During this presentation, Chris Chapman, M.D., President, Director and Chief Medical Officer, and Adam Kaplin, M.D., PhD, Chief Scientific Officer will discuss the multiple indications for each of MyMD’s novel drug candidates. The MYMD-1 drug platform is being developed to target aging (sarcopenia), autoimmune diseases and immune-mediated depression, and shows potential as an anti-fibrotic and anti-neoplastic therapeutic. MYMD-1 is also being developed as a potential therapy for COVID-19-related conditions such as post-COVID-19 syndromes. Supera-CBD is being developed to address anxiety, chronic pain, addiction, and seizures, and is on a path toward human clinical trials as a therapy for epilepsy, followed by chronic pain. It also has the potential to address the significant unmet need for medications to treat stimulant addictions – specifically cocaine, methamphetamine – as well as opioid use disorders.
About MyMD Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
MyMD Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MYMD), a clinical stage pharmaceutical company committed to extending healthy lifespan, is focused on developing two novel therapeutic platforms that treat the causes of disease and decline rather than only addressing the symptoms. MYMD-1 is a drug platform based on a clinical stage small molecule that regulates the immunometabolic system to control TNF-α, a driver of chronic inflammation, and other pro-inflammatory cell signaling cytokines. MYMD-1 is being developed to treat aging and longevity, autoimmune diseases, and COVID-19- associated depression and cytokine elevation. The Company’s second drug platform, Supera-CBD, is being developed to treat chronic pain, addiction and epilepsy. Based on a novel synthetic derivative of cannabidiol (CBD), Supera-CBD is being developed to address the rapidly growing CBD market, which includes both FDA approved drugs and CBD products not currently regulated as drugs.
