BASEL, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Novaremed AG, a clinical-stage Swiss biopharmaceutical company, today announced a poster presentation highlighting the top-line results from a Phase 2a (Proof of Concept) study of NRD.E1 for the treatment of diabetic neuropathic pain (DNP). The poster presentation took place at the 7th International Congress on Neuropathic Pain Meeting (NeuPSIG) in London, UK on May 9-11, 2019.
“This was our first communication at a leading neuropathic pain-focused event. Novaremed’s lead drug, NRD.E1 is a non-opioid small molecule for the treatment of neuropathic pain. The results of our Phase 2a in patients with DNP showed clinically relevant treatment benefit from NRD.E1 across multiple primary and secondary endpoints, providing a strong scientific foundation for advancing the development of NRD.E1 into the upcoming global Phase 2b study in DNP,” said Sara Mangialaio, Head of R&D and Chief Medical Officer of Novaremed AG. “NRD.E1 has the potential to address a major unmet medical need in DNP.”
