What if veterinarians could ease the ongoing pain of osteoarthritis in pets while potentially reducing side effects of current treatment options?

Osteoarthritis is a painful and progressive disease involving joint inflammation, cartilage destruction and eventually bone changes. Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of lameness in dogs and is thought to affect up to 1 in 5 dogs.

PETX reported positive results from its pivotal field study of AT-001 (Grapiprant), its innovative drug for treating pain in dogs with osteoarthritis.

In the study, dogs receiving AT-001 demonstrated improvements in pain assessment scores that were statistically significant compared to placebo (p<0.05) at a once-daily oral dose. PETX expects to commence commercialization upon FDA approval, which the company anticipates in 2016.
