By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Eupraxia Pharmaceuticals Inc. (TSX: EPRX) (NASDAQ: EPRX), a clinical-stage biotechnology company leveraging its proprietary DiffuSphere™ technology to optimize drug delivery for applications with significant unmet need, announced that Eupraxia’s CEO, Dr. James A. Helliwell, will present at a Tribe Public Webinar Presentation and Q&A Event titled, “Exploring The Rapid Rise of Osteoarthritis.” Did you know that Osteoarthritis (OA) is the leading cause of disability in older adults? The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that knee OA affects more than 30 million people in the US alone. This includes 14 million that suffer with knee pain or some form of disability. Knee OA is also associated with depression and loss of sleep, which can greatly affect quality of life.

The event is scheduled to begin at 8:30 am PT / 11:30 am ET on Tuesday, July 9, 2024.

To register to join the complimentary event, please visit Tribe Public at: EPRXJuly92024.TribePublic.com.


At this event, you will be introduced to James A. Helliwell M.D. (pictured above) the Co-founder and CEO of Eupraxia Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: EPRX). A board-certified Cardiac Anesthesiologist, he previously maintained a busy quaternary clinical and academic practice with a focus on cardiac transplantation and held a double tenure as President of the Anesthesiologists of BC.

Dr. Helliwell’s experience in the operating room and ICU instilled an appreciation for the value of precision drug delivery to achieve successful patient outcomes. This led him to create Eupraxia Pharmaceuticals, a company developing precision medicines in areas of high unmet medical need. In 2021, Eupraxia became the first biotech to successfully list exclusively on the Toronto Stock Exchange in almost 20 years. The company’s lead product candidate – a long-acting corticosteroid to treat osteoarthritis pain – is currently in Phase 2 clinical development.

Dr. Helliwell has also applied precision delivery to the medical device space. As Co-founder and CEO of Accuro Technologies, he invented Arthrotap® – a medical device to improve the accuracy of intra-articular injections. After successfully transacting on Accuro, he moved on to serve as Chair of the Board for Guidestar Medical Devices – a company focused on precision medicines delivery for the epidural space.
