SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DIMERx, Inc., a mid-stage biopharmaceutical company, today announced that it will present data at PAINWeek 2023, the 17th Annual National Conference on Pain for Healthcare Providers, being held September 5-8, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Nikhilesh N. Singh, Ph.D., inventor and Chief Executive Officer of DIMERx, will present the evidence of safety, efficacy and target engagement to support development of DMX-101 as a non-addictive opioid for treatment of chronic pain.
DMX-101 has been designed to exclusively engage the peripheral μ and κ opioid receptors, which account for 60-80% of all opioid receptors in the body, at the source to control pain without penetrating the brain, and consequently without producing central nervous system-related side effects such as drowsiness, euphoria, and addiction.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to present our data to academia and a peer group of specialists and practitioners focused on pain management,” stated Dr. Singh. “DMX-101 is proving to be a transformative molecule which could potentially manage chronic pain and also various gastrointestinal functional disorders.”
Details of the presentation are below:
