About TNX-102 SL
TNX-102 SL is a novel sublingual formulation of cyclobenzaprine for bedtime use. TONIX designed TNX-102 SL to provide faster and more efficient absorption of cyclobenzaprine, relative to currently marketed products approved for other indications. TONIX believes TNX-102 SL administered at bedtime will provide more targeted sleep quality effects with less likelihood of side effects than commercially-available cyclobenzaprine preparations.
TONIX is developing innovative prescription medications for challenging disorders of the central nervous system. The Company targets conditions characterized by significant unmet medical need, inadequate existing treatment options, and high dissatisfaction among both patients and physicians. TONIX's core technology improves the quality of sleep in patients with chronic pain syndromes. TONIX's lead product is designed to be a fundamental advance in sleep hygiene and pain management and to be safer and more effective than currently available treatments. Its most advanced product candidate, sublingual TNX-102 for fibromyalgia and PTSD, is a novel dosage formulation of cyclobenzaprine, the active ingredient in two U.S. FDA-approved muscle relaxants.
