A pharmaceutical company developing drugs for neurological and autoimmune/metabolic diseases.
Pharmasum Therapeutics is a private Norwegian pharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of novel drugs for treatment of neurological and autoimmune/metabolic diseases with a significant unmet medical need.
