ENGLEWOOD, Colo., March 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ampio Pharmaceuticals (NYSE American: AMPE), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the advancement of immunology-based therapies for prevalent inflammatory conditions, today announced that it has been invited to present at the Benzinga Biotech Small Cap Conference being held virtually on March 24 & 25, 2021.
Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company primarily engaged in the development of AmpionTM, our lead anti-inflammatory drug, which is currently undergoing clinical trials focused on the treatment of patients afflicted with COVID-19 induced acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) as well as patients suffering from severe (KL-4) osteoarthritis of the knee (OAK). Both conditions impact a significant percentage of the population and due to the lack of any FDA approved drugs for treatment, there exists a significant unmet medical need. Ampion is backed by an extensive global patent portfolio with intellectual property protection extending through 2035. In addition, Ampion will be eligible for 12-year FDA market exclusivity upon approval as a novel biologic under the biologics price competition and innovation act (BPCIA).
