About PXT3003

PXT3003, Pharnext’s lead PLEODRUG™ in development for the treatment of Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 1A disease (CMT1A), is a novel, synergistic, low-dose combination of baclofen, naltrexone, and D-sorbitol formulated as an oral solution given twice-daily. PXT3003 has multiple main mechanisms of action: a synergistic inhibition of PMP22 gene overexpression associated with myelination improvement, direct nerve protection and additional positive effects on other cellular types: muscle cells, neuromuscular junctions and immune cells. PXT3003 obtained positive results in a Phase II clinical trial in 80 adult patients with CMT1A. In 2014, the EMA and FDA granted orphan drug designation to PXT3003 for the treatment of CMT1A in adults. An international pivotal Phase III trial (PLEO-CMT) in over 300 adult patients with CMT1A is now underway at 30 sites across Europe, the U.S. and Canada.
