About CNTX-4975

CNTX-4975 is based on Centrexion’s proprietary STRATI™ technology (Synthetic TRans cApsaicin ulTra-pure Injection), a highly potent, ultrapure, synthetic form of trans-capsaicin (a medicine traditionally derived from the chili plant). CNTX-4975 is designed to be injected directly into the site of pain to provide rapid onset, large reduction and long duration of relief from moderate to severe pain without affecting touch sensibility or position sense.

CNTX-4975 works by selectively targeting the capsaicin receptor (TRPV1) to rapidly inactivate only the local pain fibers transmitting signals to the brain. With a short half-life, STRATI® is cleared from the body within 24 hours. This approach provides pain relief that can last for months until the ends of the local pain fibers regenerate, while leaving the rest of the nerve fiber functioning as normal. Additionally, CNTX-4975 is without the risks of toxicities of NSAIDs, injected steroids, or the side effects, including abuse and addiction, associated with opioid treatments.

About CNTX-6970

CNTX-6970 is a novel, potent and selective CCR2 (C-C chemokine receptor type 2) antagonist with a unique analgesic profile. Recent studies have shown a close link between chronic pain and the immune system. CNTX-6970 capitalizes on this connection by taking a novel “neuro-immune” approach. The compound has a dual effect: stopping immune cells from releasing the potent cytokine MCP-1 (monocyte chemoattractant protein 1) and stopping MCP-1 from stimulating pain fibers to send pain signals. CNTX-6970 is predicted to be well suited to treat chronic painful inflammatory conditions, and a Phase 1 study showed the treatment was well tolerated with demonstrated pharmacologic and pharmacodynamic activity.
