Quotes

"What we're finding in the research on physical exercise is that exercise is at least as good as antidepressants for helping people who are depressed… physical exercise changes the level of serotonin in your brain. And it increases your endorphin levels, your ‘feel good hormones.’"
"Also remember that this is a cost-effective intervention that doesn't take much time for therapists or patients" added Dr. Opava, who noted that the at-home exercises take less than a half-hour to perform
...CEO and founder, stated that the FDA decision to grant clearance for VLX1570 to proceed to the clinical phase is a new milestone for Vivolux. "The fact that this research has attracted interest at leading cancer institutions in the USA is solid recognition of the quality for our scientists and their work. There is a considerable medical need for new cancer drugs. VLX1570 represents a first-in-class molecule within a new mechanism of action acting on a proven druggable target, the proteasome. This is a promising cancer treatment. Vivolux has a strong project pipeline and we plan to submit new applications to the FDA during 2015."
