SAN DIEGO, CA, October 23, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- WinSanTor is a clinical stage biotechnology company developing what is proving to be the first and only disease-modifying treatment for peripheral neuropathy, a neurodegenerative debilitating disease that traumatically affects the quality-of-life of 1 in 15 people throughout the world.
