Given the critical role Naᵥ1.7 plays in the generation and conduction of pain signals, combined with the urgent need for new, non-opioid pain therapies, SiteOne is focused on advancing its lead product for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. Additional opportunities with the company’s technology include long-acting analgesics, PET imaging diagnostics for pain and other pain indications. SiteOne owns worldwide development and commercialization rights to its development programs through an exclusive license from Stanford University. Read the press release here.
