Adial Pharma Touts Positive Preclinical Data From Chronic Pain Candidate
Adial Pharmaceuticals Inc's (NASDAQ: ADIL) subsidiary, Purnovate Inc, achieved positive in vivo data for PNV-5030 as a potential treatment for chronic pain.
The study was conducted in four groups of ten rats that underwent surgical injury of the sciatic nerve.
At 30 minutes post-dose, PNV-5030 reduced pain by 43% compared to the control group, while acetaminophen (APAP) doses did not have a significant effect.
PNV-5030 also demonstrated a 49% improvement in pain reduction over acetaminophen.

At 60 minutes post-dose, PNV-5030 reduced pain by 76% compared to the control group. PNV-5030 also demonstrated a 53% improvement in pain reduction over acetaminophen.
At 120 minutes post-dose, PNV-5030 reduced pain by 62% compared to the control group and by 56% at 180 minutes post-dose.
PNV-5030 has been tested to be more than 1000-fold selective over the adenosine A1 receptor. Historically, when selectivity has been achieved over the A1 receptor, water solubility has decreased, making biodistribution challenging.
However, PNV-5030 has demonstrated more than 50 times greater solubility than other known selective adenosine compounds of the same class and has shown it achieves the necessary biodistribution.
Price Action: ADIL shares are down 1.28% at $0.37 on the last check Monday.
