Client Spotlight


Kinexum congratulates one of its oldest clients on being awarded an FDA Breakthrough Therapy Designation.


Dr.Zan Fleming, who was previously the senior endocrinologist at FDA, commented:  "This is a landmark FDA decision, not just for the patients with this rare disorder, but for all patients with mechanism-defined, very high risk obesity.  Developing drugs for obesity has been dauntingly difficult, but until now FDA has not reviewed data that fulfilled the criteria for awarding breakthrough or fast track designations to an anti-obesity therapy."

Reflection - What is my profession ?


"The curricula of life have made each of us more than just a scientist, physician, communicator, or business leader.  We could answer that question differently on any given day.  The intent of the question is to remind us of the seriousness of the word.  The word profess is rooted in a context in which professing was regarded as a sacred act.  No matter what a person's profession may be, fulfillment and satisfaction soars when we sense that we are living up to this elevated form of professing."
