Developing Novel Treatments for CNS Diseases
Industry Insight

The discovery and development of drugs to treat diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) is particularly challenging compared to other disease areas. The blood–brain barrier restricts access to the brain, making the targeted delivery of drugs arduous, and in many cases, we are yet to have a complete understanding of the biology behind CNS disorders. In this industry insight, Brad Margus, CEO at Cerevance, tells us more about the company’s drug development pipeline and their lead candidate CVN424, which is currently being developed to treat Parkinson’s disease.
