MADISON, Wis., Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ironshore Pharmaceuticals & Development, Inc. ("Ironshore") has signed an agreement with Restore Health, a company specializing in personalized medicine, to participate in the fulfillment of a double-blind clinical trial, designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of HLD-200, a new drug in development to treat Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This is Restore's second clinical trial program with Ironshore.
Restore Health originally partnered with Ironshore in 2014 and continues to work with other development-stage companies nationally and internationally.

We strive to exceed expectations for all clinical trial requirements."

"We are pleased to be partnering with Restore Health for a second time, given their demonstrated ability to manage the complexity of dosing assignments and the logistics of a multi-site trial, and to maintain strict controls according to DEA requirements," said Jill Kapuscinski ,Vice President of Pharmaceutical Operations.
