Orphazyme A/S (ORPH) ADR EACH REPR 1 ORD SHS SPON
Orphazyme A/S, formerly Orphazyme ApS, is a Denmark-based company active within the biopharmaceutical industry. It develops new therapies for the treatment of a family of genetic disorders. The Company's main focus is on preclinical development of medicines for the treatment of lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs), a group of approximately 50 genetic disorders that result from deficiencies of lysosomal enzymes or other lysosomal components, and protein aggregation diseases. The Company’s candidate, arimoclomol, stimulates the production of the cells’ protein rescue system, the heat shock proteins, which helps the misfolded proteins to either get back to their functional shape or, if this cannot be achieved, remove them from the cells by means of the cells’ recycling system, the lysosomes, so they no longer form toxic aggregates. The Company collaborates with academic institutions in Europe and the United States.
The London Stock Exchange does not disclose whether a trade is a buy or a sell so this data is estimated based on the trade price received and the LSE-quoted mid-price at the point the trade is placed. It should only be considered an indication and not a recommendation.
Trades priced above the mid-price at the time the trade is placed are labelled as a buy; those priced below the mid-price are sells; and those priced close to the mid-price or declared late are labelled 'N/A'.
