Quantum Genomics to Present at the Gordon Research Conference 2020 Dedicated to the Renin Angiotensin Aldosterone System

Quantum Genomics (Euronext Growth - FR0011648971 - ALQGC, OTCQX - QNNTF), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in developing a new drug class that directly targets the brain to treat resistant hypertension and heart failure, today announced it will share preclinical results of firibastat in heart failure post myocardial ischemia during an oral presentation at the Gordon Research Conference being held from February 8-14, 2020 in Barga, Italy.

Dr. Solene Boitard-Joanne, Pharmacology Department of Quantum Genomics, will present preclinical results of firibastat in mice after myocardial infarction, obtained in collaboration with the INSERM laboratory directed by Dr. Catherine Llorens-Cortès at the Collège de France. The results, published recently in the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology, demonstrate the efficacy of firibastat in improving cardiac function and preventing the onset of heart failure after a myocardial infarction (Boitard et al, 2019).

About Quantum Genomics

Quantum Genomics is a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of a new class of cardiovascular medications based on brain aminopeptidase A inhibition (BAPAI). Quantum Genomics is the only company in the world exploring this innovative approach that directly targets the brain. The company relies on 20 years of academic research from the Paris-Descartes University and the laboratory directed by Dr. Catherine Llorens-Cortes at the Collège de France (French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM)/ the Scientific Centre for National Research (CNRS)). The goal of Quantum Genomics is to develop innovative treatments for complicated, or even resistant, cases of hypertension (around 30% of patients have poor control of their condition or receive ineffective treatment) and for heart failure (one in two patients diagnosed with severe heart failure dies within five years).
