PTC Therapeutics and PPMD have scheduled a call on May 27, 2010 at 5:00pm eastern. The call will include PTC President Stuart Peltz and Chief Medical Officer for the ataluren trial, Langdon Miller, MD.
Stuart and Langdon will update the community about ataluren and future plans. The conference call will be open to 150 callers. Lines will be muted and PPMD’s Sharon Hesterlee will conduct the interview and field your questions. The discussion will include analysis of data from the ataluren trial and a summary of regulatory challenges.
