“The NIBA is an important conference to engage the markets. We’re heading into 2018 as the only non-opiate, new drug candidate engaging the FDA expecting to treat post-surgical pain longer than 3 days while lasting up to 14 days. We are in a great position for FDA approval in late 2019”, said CEO Frank Reynolds.
The NeuroReleaseTM Platform: Non-Addictive
and Non-opiate Treatment of Pain
NeuroReleaseTM is a morphine replacement, and non-addictive pain platform for post-surgical pain. First product FDA approval for the platform will be for a 14-day post-surgical pain treatment and it is expected in late 2019.
Major Benefits of NeuroReleaseTM
- Non-addictive, non-opiate nerve block
- Treats only sensory nerve fibers, or pain signals going back to the brain;
- No effect on locomotion nerve fibers, so patients can enter physical therapy quickly;
- Maintains two-point discriminate touch so patients can function and feel the ground; and
- 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 NeuroReleaseTM pain platform will also include 3-day, 7-day, and 90-Day pain treatments. NeuroReleaseTM is biodegradable and non-toxic so NeuroReleaseTM can be re-injected for repeat treatments.
