The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research awarded Rhythm Pharmaceuticals a $1.4 million grant to support a midstage study of ghrelin agonist RM-131, its drug candidate for refractory constipation, which affects many Parkinson's disease patients. "As we continue our work to advance RM-131 in the clinic, we are excited to join with The Michael J. Fox Foundation to address this important unmet need in Parkinson’s disease," Rhythm CEO Keith Gottesdiener said.
