WELLESLEY, MA — November 1st, 2018, Censa Pharmaceuticals Inc., a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of CNSA-001 for orphan diseases, announced that it has successfully completed a Phase I study and has initiated enrollment into several Phase II studies. The Phase I study showed CNSA-001’s favorable safety profile and promising pharmacokinetic & pharmacodynamic characteristics. The Company is now looking to demonstrate CNSA-001’s efficacy in diseases known to be associated with suboptimal tetrahydrobiopterin related pathways. “The completion of our Phase I study and the initiation of phase II studies represent the culmination of extensive efforts over the last two years from our employees, investigators, clinical trial sites, contract research organization, caregivers and patients.
