CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cyclerion Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: CYCN), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) stimulators for the treatment of serious and orphan diseases, today announced that it will host a webcast investor event, to be held in New York City, on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
This first Cyclerion live investor event will focus on praliciguat, the company’s investigational, orally administered, once-daily systemic sGC stimulator designed for the treatment of serious cardiometabolic diseases. External subject matter experts – Dr. James Udelson of Tufts Medical Center and Dr. Barbara Gillespie of the University of North Carolina and Covance – and members of Cyclerion’s leadership team will review the role of the nitric oxide/sGC system in cardiorenal physiology, the praliciguat development program, and the ongoing Phase 2 clinical studies investigating praliciguat as a potential treatment for diabetic nephropathy and for HFpEF. Both studies are fully enrolled, and topline clinical results are expected in Q4 2019.
Professional investors and equity research analysts are invited to attend the event in person. Please contact Jessi Rennekamp at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
A webcast replay will be available on the Cyclerion website beginning approximately two hours after the event and will be archived for 21 days.
