Announces Appointment of Dr. Zahed Subhan to Board of Directors

Adhera Therapeutics (OTCMKTS:ATRX) has just appointed Zahed Subhan, BS MS PhD MBA LLB, to the Company’s Board of Directors. Having over three decades of experience in the United States, United Kingdom, European Union, and Asia, Dr. Subhan is an international pharmaceutical and biotechnology executive. His forte is in all phases of drug development, particularly in neurology, psychiatry, oncology, cardiovascular, urology and metabolic disease therapeutic areas.

Andrew Kucharchuk, CEO of Adhera Therapeutics, eagerly welcomes Dr. Subhan, and looks forward to his contribution towards drug development, business development and capital markets, as the company advances its experimental drugs through the clinical process. According to him, Dr. Subhan’s credentials, international experience, and expertise with MLR-1023 (crucial in structuring and conducting their planned Phase 2b clinical trial for Type 1 diabetes), is what makes him invaluable.

On his end, Dr. Subhan is equally excited for this opportunity to assume a leadership role at Adhera. He is diligently working towards advancing a compelling pipeline via international and domestic markets. This move, he feels is necessary to bridge certain areas of unmet medical requirements, while building corporate value.
