About Pain Therapeutics, Inc.
Pain Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that develops novel drugs.  The Company believes its research program in Alzheimer’s disease has game-changing characteristics.  Its lead drug candidate, PTI-125, is a small molecule with a unique mechanism of action to treat Alzheimer’s disease.  The underlying science for PTI-125 is published in prestigious peer-reviewed journals, including Journal of Neuroscience, Neurobiology of Aging, and Neuroimmunology and Neuroinflammation, and benefits from several peer-reviewed research grant awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 

The Company is also developing a blood test, called PTI-125DX, to detect Alzheimer’s disease, possibly years before symptoms appear.  An early diagnosis of Alzheimer's could allow treatment to start sooner, optimize treatment options for each individual and improve chances to slow or halt the disease. 

Last, the Company also has an NDA-stage drug asset, REMOXY, for severe chronic pain, which is currently held up at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  The FDA has not yet established the safety or efficacy of any of our drug candidates.  For more information, please visit www.paintrials.com.
