The PWS community in the Netherlands is relatively small, but large enough to lobby governments, health insurance companies, researchers, hospitals, health care providers and other social organizations through education and information, peer contact, advocacy and international cooperation. We support this conference in Berlin because it’s very important to exchange PWS expertise.

Aardvark Therapeutics is dedicated to bringing novel drugs that activate innate homeostatic pathways to patients living with neurodevelopmental, metabolic and inflammatory disorders.

The lead product, ARD-101, is a first-in-class oral drug that is restricted to the gut which contributes to its safety, yet conveys systemic effects by stimulating gut peptide hormone secretion and gut-brain signaling with broad therapeutic potential. A phase 2 clinical trial in Prader-Willi Syndrome documented excellent safety and hunger control, supporting continued development.
