Albuquerque Neuroscience also brings additional deep therapeutic experience in Alzheimer’s Disease, vascular dementia, insomnia, pain management, fibromyalgia, constipation and sexual dysfunction.
The acquisition of Albuquerque Neuroscience aligns with IMA’s mission to reach people everywhere, as it partners with sponsors in the development of safe and effective treatments.
