PaxMedica to discuss significance of Phase 3 study results

Interview to be webcast on Tuesday, August 15, 2023, at 10:30 am ET

TARRYTOWN, NY, August 8, 2023 – PaxMedica, Inc. (Nasdaq: PXMD), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focusing on the development of novel anti-purinergic drug therapies (APT) for the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other serious conditions with intractable neurologic symptoms, will join PCG Advisory for a Fireside Chat on Tuesday, August 15, 2023, at 10:30 am ET.

PaxMedica Chief Executive Officer, Howard Weisman, will discuss the significance of the positive results achieved in the company’s PAX-HAT-301 retrospective study of suramin as the company works to accelerate the clinical development of PAX-101 as a potential treatment for the core symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). A previously-completed small Phase 2a study has linked the use of suramin to improvement of ASD symptoms, and larger studies are needed.

“We are excited to have completed our real-world evidence study that evaluated the safety and efficacy of PAX-101 as a treatment for the rare tropical disease, African Sleeping Sickness. Suramin has never been approved for use in the U.S. and PaxMedica expects to submit a New Drug Application for PAX-101 in this indication to the FDA in 2024.

“If PAX-101 is approved by the FDA, PaxMedica would potentially qualify to receive a Priority Review Voucher (PRV) under the Neglected Rare Tropical Disease Program.

“We look forward to participating in the PCG Advisory Fireside Chat and sharing some of our recent highlights with investors,” said Mr. Weisman.
