By systematically involving 390 myotonia patients across 18 European countries through the project MYOPATH, admedicum® was instrumental in demonstrating EMA the great need for patient access to Namuscla® (mexiletine). The EMA Committee of Orphan Medicinal Products (COMP) explicitly highlighted the quality of the MYOPATH survey methodology that led to the capture of important information regarding a lack of treatment access resulting in patient harm.

The CDKL5 Research & Family conference, which Philipp was instrumental with in shaping the agenda, was an exceptionally great meeting! I had a chance to talk to many of the families and I know they appreciated these days and loved how much opportunity they had to participate and tell their stories and help shape the field and advance it. This was truly the first patient-centric meeting I’ve ever attended, and that was very much thanks to Philipp‘s vision.
Undisclosed pharma participant on the same conference: „You and Carol-Anne organized the best disease-focused family meeting I ever attended. The interaction and co-collaboration amongst all constituents was extremely beneficial to everyone in attendance. I especially appreciated hearing directly from the caregivers their needs and wants for clinical trials and new medications.“

Herrn Dr. Andreas Reimann lernte ich in den Jahren 2002 - 2012, als Geschäftsführer unseres Verbandes, über die Maßen schätzen. Ich bin Vater eines Sohnes mit Mukoviszidose und weiß, was alle Betroffenen an Zuwachs von Lebenszeit und Lebensqualität ihm verdanken. Herrn Dr. Reimann ist es bei seiner Tätigkeit gelungen, Menschlichkeit und professionelles Handeln, zum Wohle der Kranken, zu verbinden.
Steffen Stürzebecher, SVP Head of Innovation Unit Specialty Therapeutics, Grünenthal
His passion for patients' needs and real innovation is as admirable as is his sharp intellect and his understanding of the science, providing for a blend of capabilities and attitude that make "business" equally enjoyable for colleagues and business partners. One always feels his determination to succeed, paired with the patience that our business needs, the preparedness and energy to deal with foreseeable and non-foreseeable hurdles keeping the motivation high at all times as a contributor to a project and as a leader.
His vision of a patient centric approach to pharmaceutical development, in particular in rare and orphan diseases, together with the implementation of a concrete series of patient focused events has created a momentum that our company is still benefitting from.

For more than 30 years, I have promoted genetic diseases and pain awareness as a health professional with a genetic disease and chronic pain.

Dr Jenny Royle, Senior patient-centricity programme leader of Cancer Research UK, on panel facilitator Rachel Jone
Rachel interacts with patients and their families with both tact and ease, ensuring that we end up with networks of people engaged and wanting to be involved. She has an ability that I think is rare to find: naturally picking up on peoples non-verbal as well as verbal meanings very quickly.
