About CNTX-4975

CNTX-4975 is based on Centrexion’s proprietary STRATI® technology (Synthetic TRans cApsaicin ulTra-pure Injection), a highly potent, ultrapure, synthetic form of trans-capsaicin (a medicine traditionally derived from the chili plant). CNTX-4975 is designed to be injected directly into the site of pain to provide rapid onset, large reduction and long duration of relief from moderate to severe pain without affecting touch sensibility or position sense.

CNTX-4975 works by selectively targeting the capsaicin receptor (TRPV1) to rapidly inactivate only the local pain fibers transmitting signals to the brain. With a short half-life, STRATI® is cleared from the body within 24 hours. This approach provides pain relief that can last for months until the ends of the local pain fibers regenerate, while maintaining normal sensation, such as touch, pressure and position, and without the risks of toxicities of NSAIDs and injected corticosteroids or the side effects, including abuse and addiction, associated with opioid treatments.
