09 October 2018

On Oct. 9, 2018, Therachon AG announced the acquisition of GLyPharma Therapeutic Inc. for an undisclosed amount.

Therachon is a clinical-stage global biotechnology company based in Basel, Switzerland, which is focused on developing medicines for rare conditions with significant unmet medical needs.
