"We're in the hottest space in Biotech and Pharma with non-opiate, non-addictive pain treatments a societal mandate. In an era where there are limited numbers of early to mid-stage non-opiate product portfolios available to wall street for investment, PixarBio's non-opiate R&D portfolio strategy will separate us from all competitors at 2017 Biotech Showcase. As inventors create and capture value, the annual conference often accelerates commercialization through investor awareness. Better alignment between value captured and the arrival of funding to commercialize it, is the best way to optimize ROI for stakeholders. Industry executives with breakthrough platforms like NeuroRelease gain exposure to wall-street research analysts who then prepare wall-street for what's next in medicine. It's the best way to ensure industry pipelines for all diseases remain funded and make it to the patients," said PixarBio Corporation CEO Frank Reynolds.

The NeuroRelease™ Platform: Non-Addictive and Non-opiate
Treatment of Pain
NeuroRelease™ is a morphine replacement, and non-addictive pain platform for the surgical/hospital setting, for the battlefield, or for acute and chronic pain. First product FDA approval for the platform will be for a 14-day post-surgical pain treatment and it is expected in early 2019.
Major Benefits of NeuroRelease™
- Effects only sensory signals
- No effect on locomotion nerve fibers, so patients can enter physical therapy quickly
- Maintains two-point discriminate touch so patients can function
- No effect on proprioception so no effect on a person feeling of well-being
Therefore, patients will maintain two-point discriminate touch, control of their locomotion nerve fibers so they control voluntary movement to enter rehabilitation quickly with a non-addictive morphine replacement. PixarBio’s NeuroRelease™ pain platform also includes 4-8 hour, 3-day, 7-day, 14-day and 90-Day pain treatments all have expected FDA approvals in 2020. NeuroRelease™ is biodegradable, and it's non-toxic so NeuroRelease™ can be re-injected to extend treatment timelines.
