Neuropathic pain is a major area of unmet medical need. It can be caused by trauma to the peripheral or central nervous system, by chemotherapeutics or other drug treatments, or by metabolic disease. The therapeutics currently used to treat neuropathic pain are not sufficiently effective and have poor side-effect profiles.
4E is targeting the underlying mechanisms causing pain in neuropathic pain patients. We are developing therapeutics that can transform the lives of people suffering from neuropathic pain.
Leading the charge to a pain free tomorrow.
