The NeuroReleaseTM Platform: Non-Addictive and Non-opiate Treatment of Pain

NeuroReleaseTM is a morphine replacement, and non-addictive pain platform for the surgical/hospital setting, for the battlefield, or for acute and chronic pain. First product FDA approval for the platform will be for a 14-day post-surgical pain treatment and it is expected in late 2018.

Major Benefits of NeuroReleaseTM

  • Effects only sensory signals
  • No effect on locomotion nerve fibers, so patients can enter physical therapy quickly
  • Maintains two-point discriminate touch so patients can function

Therefore, patients will maintain two-point discriminate touch, control of their locomotion nerve fibers so they control voluntary movement to enter rehabilitation quickly with a non-addictive morphine replacement. PixarBio's NeuroReleaseTM pain platform also includes 4-8 hour, 3-day, 7-day, 14-day and 90-Day pain treatments all have expected FDA approvals in 2020. NeuroReleaseTM is biodegradable, and it's non-toxic so NeuroReleaseTM can be re-injected to extend treatment timelines.
