Abliva presents at UMDF Mitochondrial Medicine 2023

Abliva AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: ABLI), a clinical-stage company developing drugs for the treatment of rare and severe primary mitochondrial disease, today announced that the company will present at UMDF’s Mitochondrial Medicine Symposium, the largest US conference on mitochondrial medicine, being held in Charlotte, North Carolina, from June 28 to July 1, 2023.

The U.S. patient advocacy group, United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF), hosts an annual meeting focused on mitochondrial medicine, this year in Charlotte, North Carolina. Similar to the European meeting on mitochondrial disease, Euromit, this year held in Bologna, Italy, in June, UMDF’s Mitochondrial Medicine Symposium brings mitochondrial disease researchers, physicians, clinical trial experts and patient advocacy groups together to discuss the latest advances in mitochondrial research and clinical development. In addition, UMDF has an extensive program for patients and families.

During the meeting, the Abliva team and collaborators will present data from the fatigue endpoint validation study, experimental data from the company’s KL1333 program, as well as experimental data from the NV354 program. In addition, Abliva’s Chief Medical Officer, Magnus Hansson, will provide an update on the company’s ongoing, potentially registrational, Phase 2 study, the FALCON study. The following posters will be presented:
