Re: Karuna Therapeutics in dementia-related psychosis, and Axovant Gene therapy in PD
Jim: its cool--always interested in bios out there flying under the radar. I do understand these are very early stage bios as they stand. I know all about AXON and their sorted history. Know people there now! One of the bigger guys there now was a dude who bailed from the TEVA downsizing.
This company made many sophomoric mistakes on both their earlier drugs. The people involved change multiple times leading back to a re-organization with the parent Vant (Roivant). company a while back. the guy running Roivant doesn't;t care about science---he is all about deals!
Your other science question is too hot for me to answer. Need a doctor or a mechanistic researcher for that one! I am more a drug development guy.
