Neumentum: Addressing a National Health Emergency
Opioid use is considered a critical public health concern in the US. In 2018, 10.3 million people misused prescription opioid pain relievers[i]. More than 70 million surgical procedures are performed in the U.S. annually and postsurgical pain is routinely treated with opioid analgesics.
Neumentum is dedicated to becoming a leading non-opioid analgesic and neurology specialty pharmaceutical company with product candidates that have the potential to provide the benefits of safe and effective pain management without the limitations and risks for abuse and misuse that come with opioids. Neumentum’s lead product candidate, NTM-001 (novel, alcohol-free formulation of ketorolac in a pre-mixed bag for continuous IV infusion), has the potential to treat moderately severe acute pain that requires analgesia at the opioid level for up to 24 hours, usually in a postoperative setting, and to reduce the need for opioids. Additionally, NTM-006, a product that is neither an opioid nor a NSAID, has completed positive Phase 2A clinical studies for moderate to moderately severe acute pain. Neumentum is led by a world-wide executive team of biotech and pharmaceutical industry leaders who have extensive experience in pain and neurology, from drug development through commercialization.
