PMS & PMDD in spotlight at Gothenburg event for International Menstrual Hygiene Day

(Stockholm May 23, 2019) Valuable knowledge about PMS & PMDD will be shared at the University of Gothenburg on May 28 at a public evening of talks, lectures and Q&A. Prof Torbjörn Bäckström, PMDD research pioneer and Asarina Pharma CSO, will speak about the science and treatment of PMDD.

The PMS & PMDD evening will take place at the University of Gothenburg, Sprängkullsgatan 19, 1700-1930. It has been organised by Isabel Lindström of the Gender Equality organisation Bättre än de flesta, together with the organisation Mensen. Over a hundred are expected to attend the event, which is being sponsored by Asarina Pharma.


Karin Ekberg, Asarina Pharma COO: “If you or someone you know in the Gothenburg area feels like you’re suffering way more than you should be around your period—you’re not alone. PMDD is a devastating hormonal condition, not a mental illness or something you can ‘snap out of’. Events like this offer new knowledge and new support—so it’s easier to take back control, dare to get a diagnosis and get better understanding from those around you.”

Peter Nordkild, Asarina Pharma CEO: “As developers of Sepranolone, the first ever dedicated therapy for PMDD, we’re delighted to be sponsors. Knowledge is power, and with a full program of speakers this event is a good opportunity to learn more about this terrible condition, what it is, what causes it and what treatment options are—and will be, available.”
