Marathon Pharmaceuticals has offices in Chicago, New Jersey, and Northbrook. The firm mainly deals with patients suffering from rare diseases or whose medical conditions are not fully satisfied by other medical practitioners or medical institutions. The pharmaceutical industry and the healthcare sector, in general, are characterized by players who like dealing with easy to manufacture medicines. However, Marathon Pharmaceuticals has come to change this narrative. The firm mainly deals with small volumes of drugs which are hard to produce. This is the unique value the firm brings to the market. The firm knows very well that patients with rare diseases have minimal treatment options and many pharmaceutical companies are not interested in solving this problem. It is at this point that this firm comes in to bridge the gap.
Marathon Pharmaceuticals is growing fast and is cementing its place in the healthcare industry. Recently, it has launched a Marathon Bioscience Centre. The center will play a significant role in the development of solutions of cancer, central nervous system diseases, gastrointestinal diseases and other forms of rare diseases. The staff working at this facility are experts in the medical sector. As such, they have many years of experience and have the necessary academic skills needed to run such a facility. Many of them are professionals in research and the treatment of rare diseases. The location of the center is close to MATTER. This is a hub for biotechnology located in Chicago. It is home to over two hundred start-ups in the healthcare sector, and many professionals and hospitals are seeking to tap into this opportunity.
Marathon Pharmaceuticals has been involved in the production of medical solutions for patients with rare diseases. As such, it has overseen the development of various medications such as Seconal Sodium, PEPCID®, and ZiNGO among Others. Perhaps one of the flagship medication is the Seconal Sodium. The drug acts as a depressant to the central nervous systems. It is capable of depressing sensory cortex and in turn, minimize motor activity. It is strongly recommended to people who require sedation and drowsiness or people who need pre-anesthetic before undergoing an operation.
