Unravelling neuroendocrine disease

Cortene is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, applying its expertise of the neuroendocrine system to develop therapies for myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and related diseases.


Coronavirus could trigger post-viral fatigue syndromes similar to that following the SARS 2002/3 outbreak, in which up to 40% of survivors had ongoing ME/CFS-like symptoms (with 27% meeting the CDC’s criteria for ME/CFS) 4 years later[1]. Cortene’s pioneering treatment for ME/CFS could be an important treatment for this condition.
