MetrioPharm in the Media
During the past quarter, we were able to successfully place MetrioPharm in the media on three occasions again. The main topic of all publications was the global Covid-19 pandemic.
On April 6, 2021, a commentary titled "From Pandemic to Therapy" by MetrioPharm's CEO Dr. Wolfgang Brysch was published in the Berlin-based daily, "Tagesspiegel". Dr. Brysch argues that as a long-term Corona strategy, the general focus must be on developing therapeutics to treat Covid-19.
On May 26, 2021, another opinion piece "Testing new therapies faster and still safely" was published in the "Frankfurter Rundschau". In this article, Dr. Brysch discusses the procedural standardization of clinical trials to enable a faster development of therapeutics.
On June 26, 2021, MetrioPharm was mentioned in the piece "Underestimated Corona Therapeutics” in the Swiss business newspaper "Finanz und Wirtschaft”. Here, author Rupen Boyadjian describes individual companies setting up clinical trials for corona therapeutics and the urgent need for those treating patients, worldwide.
