Drug Development Co. Pharma Two B Raises $8 Million


10/23/2012 6:58:15 AM

REHOVOTH, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Pharma Two B Ltd., a privately held company focused on developing Fixed-Dose-Combinations (FDCs) of two or more drugs with complementary and synergistic effects, announced that it has completed its second round of financing and has raised $8 million.

Financing will be used to continue the development of the company's Fixed-Dose-Combination product for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, and complete the pivotal Phase IIb clinical trial as part of the US FDA 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway the company chose to take.

"We are happy to have secured the financing that will bring our new combination drug to Phase IIb completion and to be able to offer better and safer treatment for Parkinson’s patients," said Pharma Two B Founder & Chairman Mr. Ehud Marom. “Our second round will cover our financial needs up to 2015, at which point in time we will start receiving royalties from our generic product portfolio.”

Parkinson’s disease is defined as the second most prevalent neurodegenerative disease, treated today mostly with Levodopa. Our new combination product P2B001 will fill a significant unmet need in the treatment regime for early stage Parkinson’s disease patients.
