EVANSTON, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aptinyx Inc. (Nasdaq: APTX), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing transformative therapies for the treatment of brain and nervous system disorders, today announced that it will host a virtual portfolio review event on Wednesday, February 9, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. ET. The live webcast event will review Aptinyx’s full pipeline of clinical development programs, with particular focus on NYX-2925, the company’s drug candidate in development for the treatment of chronic pain.
The program will feature a presentation by Richard Rauck, MD, a board-certified physician in pain medicine and anesthesiology at Carolinas Pain Institute and medical director for The Center for Clinical Research. Dr. Rauck is an investigator in the company’s ongoing Phase 2b study of NYX-2925 in painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN).
The event will also include presentations from the Aptinyx management team discussing the company’s novel approach to discovering and developing NMDA receptor modulators, as well as reviews of each of the company’s clinical development programs. Aptinyx management will provide a deep-dive review of NYX-2925, the company’s first-in-class NMDA receptor positive allosteric modulator in development for the treatment of chronic pain. In October, Aptinyx announced the completion of enrollment in its Phase 2b study of NYX-2925 in patients with painful DPN and expects to report data from the study in the early to mid second quarter of 2022. Aptinyx’s concurrent Phase 2b study of NYX-2925 in patients with fibromyalgia is expected to report data in mid 2022. The Aptinyx management team and Dr. Rauck will be available for Q&A following the presentations.
