Tolperisone is approved and widely used in Europe and Asia for the treatment of neuromuscular conditions. It has been shown to be safe and effective in treating neuromuscular conditions and non-sedating, a side effect most commonly seen with other muscle relaxants.
Neurana is preparing to commence a Phase 2 dose-ranging clinical study to further demonstrate the safety and efficacy of tolperisone in subjects with acute, painful muscle spasms of the back.
