Theravance Inc. (THRX)
Fibromyalgia has been estimated to affect approximately 5 million individuals in the United States. It is the most common musculoskeletal condition after osteoarthritis. Still, it is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood. Its characteristics include widespread muscle and joint pain and fatigue, as well as other symptoms. Fibromyalgia can lead to depression and social isolation.
Although fibromyalgia is often considered an arthritis-related condition, it is not truly a form of arthritis (a disease of the joints) because it does not cause inflammation or damage to the joints, muscles, or other tissues. Like arthritis, however, fibromyalgia can cause significant pain and fatigue, and it can interfere with a person's ability to carry on daily activities.
THRX reported positive results from a Phase 2 study of TD-9855 in patients with fibromyalgia
TD-9855, discovered by THRX, is an investigational norepinephrine and serotonin reuptake inhibitor for the treatment of central nervous system conditions such as chronic pain and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
The study demonstrated statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvements in the primary and secondary endpoints at the 20 mg dose of TD-9855, which was generally well tolerated and, compared with placebo, significantly improved pain as well as other symptoms commonly associated with fibromyalgia.
THRX is a biopharmaceutical company with a pipeline of internally discovered product candidates and strategic collaborations with pharmaceutical companies. It is focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of small molecule medicines across a number of therapeutic areas including respiratory disease, bacterial infections, and central nervous system (NYSE:CNS)/pain.
