Adynxx, located in San Francisco, California, is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing a transformative technology platform addressing pain at its molecular roots – preventing the development of pain following surgery and resolving established chronic pain conditions. Adynxx’s unique approach is to transform pain management by approaching pain as a disease rather than a symptom.
Adynxx’s lead compound, AYX1, is an investigational drug designed to reduce acute post-surgical pain and prevent the transition to persistent or chronic pain with a single administration at the time of surgery. Adynxx has successfully demonstrated clinical efficacy in two Phase 2 clinical studies of AYX1 and is currently enrolling a final Phase 2 study to prepare for Phase 3 initiation in 2018. Additional AYX drug candidate compounds designed to address a range of intractable neuropathic and inflammatory pain syndromes are also in active development.
