Altasciences Initiates Phase I Study in Healthy Normal Subjects for ST-2427, a Non-Opioid Analgesic for Acute Pain
Laval, Quebec, May 13, 2021 – Altasciences is pleased to support SiteOne Therapeutics with a Phase I, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in healthy adults to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of ST-2427. ST-2427 is a highly selective inhibitor of NaV1.7 for the management of moderate-to-severe pain; by selectively targeting NaV1.7, ST-2427 aims to stop the electrical signals responsible for pain before they reach the central nervous system.
Amy Denvir, General Manager of Altasciences’ Kansas City clinical site, says, “We are proud to partner with SiteOne Therapeutics and help move this important therapeutic into clinical trials. Helping bring to market a new approach that may provide a non-opioid option to treat moderate to severe pain is an exciting prospect, and we look forward to delivering this ground-breaking research.”
