Nimes, France, June 21, 2017 – Advicenne, a late-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of paediatric-friendly therapeutics for the treatment of orphan renal and neurological diseases, announces today that the Company will present preliminary Phase III clinical data on ADV7103 in an oral presentation at the upcoming 50th European Society of Paediatric Nephrology (ESPN) 2017 Annual Meeting which is being held from the 7th to 9th of September in Glasgow, UK.


ADV7103 is an innovative oral formulation that is currently being evaluated in a pivotal Phase III trial in Europe in children and adults to address distal Renal Tubulopathy Acidosis (dRTA), a disease that leads to an unbalanced pH in the body that causes various complications such as hearing loss, failure to thrive, rickets (a condition that affects bone development in children) and renal impairment, ultimately leading to renal failure.
