AOP Orphan Czech Republic

AOP Orphan Pharmaceuticals is an innovative pharmaceutical company with focus on the research and development of rare diseases. In the Czech Republic it started in 2003 and focused its attention on areas of rare diseases in hematology, cardiology and pneumology. In 2004, Thromboreductin, a medicine for the treatment of essential trombocythemia, was launched on the Czech market, in 2005 Remodulin for the treatment of arterial pulmonary hypertension. The company was expanded with a team of specialists and became a marketing-driven company.

Other medicinal products have been launched in next years: Tetmodis for chorea with Huntington disease treatment, Esmocard in acute cardiology and intensive care, Adasuve in psychiatry, etc. Specialization in rare diseases requires closer contact with physicians, healthcare professionals and patient organizations, and allows us to respond quickly to the needs of patients and to make the ensuing R & D efforts. AOP Orphan employs a world-wide network of highly qualified partners, creating strategic alliances, but remains a medium-sized company capable of pushing forward and succeeding. The biggest effort of AOP Orphan is to make it available to patients with rare diseases a modern therapy and to find innovative solutions for them.
