MyMD seeks to disrupt the $31 billion global market for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) drug therapies with MYMD-1, which could potentially prove safer, more effective and better tolerated than current options Submission of Investigational New Drug (IND) application and protocols for a Phase 2 RA study planned for second half of 2022 BALTIMORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MyMD Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MYMD) (“MyMD” or “the Company”), a clinical stage pharmaceutical company committed to extending healthy lifespan, today announced positive new preclinical study data demonstrating the potential effectiveness of MYMD-1 for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
