JUPITER, Fla., Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Jupiter Orphan Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical stage pharmaceutical company focused on treating central nervous system (CNS) disorders and rare diseases, today announced a name change to Jupiter Neurosciences, Inc., and a new website, www.jupiterneurosciences.com. The name and branding were chosen to reflect the Company's expanded focus to include CNS disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and concussion.
"We are pleased to have renamed Jupiter Orphan Therapeutics to Jupiter Neurosciences to clearly reflect our broadened focus on CNS disorders," stated Christer Rosén, CEO and Chairman of the Board, Jupiter Neurosciences. "While orphan diseases like MPS-I and Friedreich's ataxia remain the cornerstone of our pipeline, recent scientific data indicate strong anti-inflammatory effects with our product, JOTROL™. We believe these effects may be applicable to many CNS related diseases and therefore believe that focusing on neurosciences underscores our commitment to addressing larger unmet medical needs."
