About Trevi Therapeutics, Inc.
Trevi Therapeutics, Inc. is a late-stage clinical development company focused on developing Nalbuphine ER for chronic pruritus (itch). Pruritus develops in various dermatologic, metabolic, hematologic and neuropathic conditions. The Company is pursuing two conditions for clinical development: uremic pruritus and prurigo nodularis. Uremic pruritus is a persistent and debilitating itch in patients on dialysis that has been associated with increased mortality. Trevi initiated a pivotal trial in uremic pruritus in mid-2014 and expects to report results in mid 2015. Prurigo nodularis is a chronic dermatologic condition characterized by severely pruritic nodules on the skin that are independent of underlying etiology. There are no approved therapies in the US or EU for either condition.
Nalbuphine ER is an oral extended release opioid with a unique opioid receptor dual agonist/antagonist mechanism of action, which has shown efficacy in addressing pruritus in both animal studies and human clinical trials. Because of Nalbuphine ER’s dual mechanism of action, the company believes it can have broad utility in treating chronic pruritus. Founded in 2011, Trevi is headquartered in New Haven, CT.
