In pharma their is little attention to Bipolar Disorder, yet the unmet needs are very high. An important read on the challenges of diagnosing #bipolar. According to this study, 69% of patients are initially misdiagnosed. Possibly more than 1/3 remain misdiagnosed for more than 10 years! @NeuroRx is focused on #ASIB in Bipolar #Depression.

This article by Nina Notman in Chemistry World a compelling review of the #NMDA treatments in development for #depression and #suicide: #NRX101 is the only drug focused on #ASIB in #Bipolar Depression, where suicidal risk is highest. Different opinions around mechanism - future clinical data ultimate differentiator. Other elements of emerging treatments appear to be:

a) Route of administration (oral vs. IV vs. intranasal),
b) Requirements for in-clinic vs. outpatient administration, including potential risk of abuse, and dissociative effects
c) Requirements for adjunctive anti-depressant treatment.

Of note, others are also now interested in suicidal ideation, which in our recent survey among those who follow the field of Neuroscience rated as #3 most poised for breakthrough (see our website: www.neurorxpharma.com)

NeuroRx has received FDA clearance to proceed with its Phase 2b/3 study protocol under an Investigational New Drug (IND) application and is now enrolling study sites for its clinical trial of NRX-101. NRX-101 is the first oral drug to target Acute Suicidal Ideation & Behavior (ASIB) in bipolar depression. The clinical trial seeks to demonstrate that NRX-101 is safe and effective in maintaining remission from ASIB and depression following initial stabilization with ketamine. Click for more info:
