March 29, 2011 -- Cytogel Pharma, LLC. is pleased to announce today that they have completed analysis of the initial results from a Phase I study of Cyt-1010 in humans. Cyt-1010 is a proprietary compound and a chemically stabilized analogue of endomorphin 1, a naturally occurring pain modulator.
This trial was designed as a safety study in normal healthy volunteers and as such there were no deaths or serious adverse effects reported. The trial included additional tests to measure sensitivity to painful stimuli. Cyt-1010 is being developed for the treatment of acute and chronic pain conditions, including neuropathic pain. These conditions represent areas of significant unmet clinical needs.
