Following the Company’s announcement of positive Phase I and proof-of-mechanism study with NMD670 in patients with myasthenia gravis and as it transitions into a late-clinical stage company, I look forward to working with Thomas and the wider NMD Pharma team as commercial and patient community engagement activity increases.”
