Psychiatric and neurological disorders
According to the World Health Organization, WHO, more than 700 million people live with psychiatric and neurological disorders globally.1 These are serious and life-threatening diseases that affect the quality of life of patients as well as of their relatives. As these diseases also involve major socio-economic costs, it is imperative for society as a whole that new and innovative pharmaceuticals are developed. Over the past 50 years, new pharmaceuticals have revolutionized treatment options, but there is still a great unmet need for new and innovative therapeutics.
