Marathon Pharmaceuticals has made its name in the healthcare sector as a firm which specializes in the development of medical solutions for rare treatments. Many patients are neglected by firms which only seek to manufacture easy solutions in a bid to capture a larger market size. However, this is not the case for this flagship company. It knows that these people need specialized medication and has thus invested a lot of time and money in conducting research and establishing a facility capable of meeting their unique needs. Marathon Pharmaceuticals explores new treatment solutions for cancer, central nervous systems, and rare neurological disorders. It has headquarters in Northbrook and has big offices in Chicago and New Jersey. That is not all. The firm has announced the launching of Marathon Bioscience Centre. The center will be located in Chicago’s River North District. The core purpose of this center is to act as a centre for research and regulatory staff tasked with the noble role of developing new solutions for rare cancer, movement disorders and endocrine deficiencies among other illnesses.
The opening of the center goes hand in hand with Marathon Pharmaceuticals’ goal of coming up with solutions for rare diseases for people with unmet medical needs. It is worth noting that this center will be located closer to MATTER. This is a biotechnology hub for startups. It is home to hundreds of start-ups seeking to come up with innovative ways of combating modern diseases. Thus, Marathon Pharmaceuticals will be strategically located in an area where it can easily partner with these professionals.
The firm is a giant in the manufacture of essential medicines which are challenging to manufacture. An excellent example of such medication is Amytal Sodium. This is a nonselective central nervous system depressant. When it depresses the sensory cortex, it assists in decreasing motor activity. As such, it produces drowsiness, sedation, and hypnosis. Amytal Sodium is best known for the short-term treatment of insomnia. It can also be used for patients who are expecting to go an operation procedure. Another flagship medicine manufactured by the firm is PEPCID®. This is an excellent medication for minimizing the quantity of acid in the stomach of patients.
