OccuRx team to meet with biotech industry leaders during BIO-Europe® conference in Germany

Melbourne, Australia, 17 October 2022: OccuRx,a biotechnology company focused on improving lives by developing innovative precision treatments for inflammatory and fibrotic diseases.

This year’s BIO-Europe Convention will be attended by OccuRx’s Chief Executive Officer, Professor Darren Kelly and Chief Commercial Officer, Dr Gareth Lewis.

BIO-Europe® is scheduled to take place 24 – 26 October 2022 in Leipzig, Germany and represents more than 3500 attendees, 110 presenting companies, from over 60 countries.

The OccuRx team will highlight their scientific advancements in anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic therapies, including their clinical development progress and plans with its novel therapeutic platform.

OccuRx has designed a platform of candidate drugs and validated the role of a novel receptor which mediates signalling pathways associated with inflammation and fibrosis. These targeted drugs have established proof of concept as potential treatments for multiple fibrotic diseases including serious and chronic conditions impacting the kidney, lung, eye, and skin. The morbidity and mortality impact of fibrotic diseases is substantial, ultimately causing 45% of all deaths globally. OccuRx is seeking to combine these innovative therapeutics with biomarkers and genetic analysis to identify those patients most likely to benefit from treatment

The company’s most advanced molecule drug candidate, OCX063, is being developed as a first-in-class oral therapy for the treatment for both kidney and ocular diseases. OCX063, is a small molecule drug with the potential to prevent the growth of new and abnormal blood vessels and reduce inflammation.

This conference will allow the OccuRx team to engage and network with BIO-Europe members who are focused on the research and development plus commercialisation of innovative healthcare and biotechnology products.

BIO-Europe® is the preeminent partnering conference for the life sciences, bringing together international decision-makers from the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and financial sectors, offering private, prescheduled one-to-one meetings, as well as workshops and panels, company presentations, and showcasing companies and sponsors in the exhibition.
