About Naurex Inc.
Naurex is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing transformative therapies for challenging disorders of the brain and nervous system. The company has built a platform for discovering drugs that enhance synaptic plasticity, or strengthen the network for neural cell communication. Molecules discovered by Naurex achieve this through a novel mechanism that modulates NMDA receptors – rather than shutting them down – resulting in drugs that are both highly effective and well tolerated. Naurex's lead molecule, rapastinel (GLYX-13), has demonstrated rapid, substantial, and sustained reductions in depressive symptoms in multiple Phase 2 clinical studies in major depressive disorder, an area of high unmet need that has seen little innovation in decades. NRX-1074, a next-generation, orally bioavailable drug candidate, has also been well tolerated in clinical studies to date and shown rapid and substantial antidepressant effects in Phase 2. Naurex's platform has yielded a rich pipeline of subtype-selective NMDA receptor modulators with the potential to treat a broad set of psychiatric and neurologic disorders.
