Belgian start-up takes fight on neuropathies

The new company, named Augustine Therapeutics, is a Vlaams Instituut voor Biotechnologie (VIB) and Katholieke Universiteit (KU) Leuven spin-off. Funded with €4.2m from mainly local investors, Augustine’s first priority is finding new therapeutics for patients suffering from Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy of the peripheral nervous system.
