About REL-1017

REL-1017, a new chemical entity (NCE) and novel NMDA receptor (NMDAR) channel blocker that preferentially targets hyperactive channels while maintaining physiological glutamatergic neurotransmission, is currently in late-stage development for the treatment of MDD in adjunctive and monotherapy Phase 3 studies. The ongoing RELIANCE Phase 3 Clinical Research Program is designed to evaluate the potential for REL-1017 as the first rapid-acting, oral, once-daily antidepressant treatment. In a Phase 2 trial, REL-1017 demonstrated rapid, robust and sustained antidepressant effects with statistically significant improvements compared to placebo in all tested measures of depression. The Phase 2 study also confirmed the favorable safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics profile of REL-1017 observed in previously completed Phase 1 studies.
