PRESS RELEASE | Basel, Switzerland, June 20, 2022
Versameb to Present during World Continence Week 2022
- Lead therapeutic candidate has the potential to treat Stress Urinary Incontinence
- Raising awareness of the high unmet medical need of patients
Versameb AG (“Versameb”), focused on discovering and developing innovative RNA-based drugs, is pleased to announce that Chief Executive Officer Klaas Zuideveld and Clinical Advisor Prof. Roger Dmochowski will be presenting Versameb’s lead therapeutic candidate, VMB-100, for the treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) at World Continence Week (WCW) 20-26 June 2022. WCW is an annual initiative fully endorsed by the European Association of Urology (EAU) and the International Continence Society (ICS) set up by the World Federation of Incontinence and Pelvic Problems (WFIPP) to raise awareness of bladder & bowel issues, chronic pelvic pain and other debilitating conditions which impact the lives of millions of patients worldwide.
During WCW, Versameb will be presenting its proprietary VERSagile mRNA technology platform and lead therapeutic candidate VMB-100, a potential treatment for Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). VMB-100 has first-and best-in-class potential and has generated promising pre-clinical data showing muscle tissue regeneration and function restoration of the urinary sphincter. Approximately 30% of adult women worldwide suffer from SUI. There is currently no drug treatment approved that restores function and has a long-term effect. VERSagile mRNA technology is well suited for the regeneration of muscle tissue and VMB-100 aims to make a difference in this hard-to-treat disease.
For more information and resources on SUI, please see Versameb’s SUI fact sheet.
