STOCKHOLM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Medivir AB (OMX:MVIR) (STO:MVIR-B) announced that MIV-247 has been selected as a candidate drug (CD) from its cathepsin S inhibitor project for the treatment of neuropathic pain, and is entering non-clinical development. Approximately 25 million patients across the US, Europe and Japan suffer from neuropathic pain, which includes diabetic neuropathy, post-herpetic neuralgia and neuropathic low-back pain. Currently marketed drugs have limited efficacy and poor side-effect profiles. Patients with neuropathic pain are therefore in great need of new and efficacious therapies that can deliver sustainable pain relief with improved tolerance and adverse event profiles.
