DALLAS, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- pHase Pharmaceuticals, LLC announces the launch of its new drug development company. pHase Pharmaceuticals is led by a cohesive team of drug development experts who have extensive experience bringing new drugs to market and garnering FDA approval.
Having developed numerous commercially successful new drugs, the pHase team has now identified an unmet clinical need in a large and growing market.

In addition, the team has identified and confirmed a streamlined regulatory path that accelerates time to market while decreasing development costs.
The team consists of Dr. Lynn Yohana Howard, Dr. Nicholas Farina, Edward Walters and Chris Howard.

The teams extensive experience in both the formulation of new compounds along with the management of the manufacturing process, clinical trials and FDA approvals, particularly 505 b(2), positions them to succeed in this new venture.
