“We have discovered novel clinical ready candidates with comprehensive preclinical packages in 4 new mechanisms (TRPV1, Cav2.2, Nav1.7, TrkA). These assets are available for interested parties to take forward into clinical investigation.”
“Sharing information on challenges that face all of us in the pain therapeutic area will hopefully create a path forward for navigating the hurdles (ie FDA) that prevent us from bringing new drugs forward in this area.”
