Peripheral neuropathy is one of the most prevalent unmet needs, yet it is one of the least recognized. In an effort to increase awareness, WinSanTor is establishing this page for patients who are willing to share their stories with us and all of you. These preliminary stories will only contain the patient’s perspective of their neuropathy thus far. After our clinical trials, we hope to establish a wave of success stories that demonstrate the efficacy of our drug while helping increase awareness of the disease and our efforts to cure it.
The stories contained herein are not a solicitation, promotion or advertisement for any drug, including those under development.
