NRX-101 – our drug in development for Bipolar Depression in patients with Acute and Subacute Suicidal; Ideation & Behavior

Learn more about our clinical trial for severe bipolar depression with Sub-Acute Suicidal Ideation & Behavior (SSIB).

Highlights

As many as 50% of individuals with bipolar disorder attempt suicide or have serious thoughts of suicide and between 11-20% of those attempt and succumb to suicide.

NRX-101 is an investigational treatment for bipolar depression in patients with Acute and Sub-Acute Suicidal Ideation and Behavior (ASIB, SSIB)

Today, no medicine is approved to specifically treat bipolar depression in patients with high levels of suicidal ideation.

NRX-101 is a patented, oral fixed-dose combination of two FDA-approved drugs: D-cycloserine, an NMDA receptor modulator; and Lurasidone, a 5-HT2a receptor antagonist.

Discovery Pipeline

We are advancing the development of the first oral investigational medicine to treat Bipolar Depression in Patients with ASIB and SSIB and we are evaluating opportunities in respiratory disease areas.

Each product in our pipeline has potential for additional indications beyond their initial target indications, and with this, we can save more lives and hope may become reality for even more people.

What Makes Us Different?

We apply innovative science to known molecules.

We focus our efforts to address critical medical conditions that are not being pursued others, such as severe bipolar depression with Acute suicidality.

We work to research and develop medicines for people that desperately need them. We accomplish our mission by directing scientific and clinical expertise towards innovative clinical protocols.
