Dr. Kazem Kazempour, President & CEO of Amarex, stated, “The U.S. FDA Fast Track program provides extra assistance from the FDA to support INDs for rare, serious diseases. We were very pleased the FDA awarded this special and valuable designation for PRG’s development program. HGPS and WS are both debilitating diseases with almost no drug treatments. We are also proud to have been selected by PRG to provide full clinical trial services for the pending study, assisting in bringing this important drug to market”.
