About NRX-101

NRX-101 is a patented, oral, fixed-dose combination of D-cycloserine and lurasidone, that has shown activity against depression in four clinical studies. NRX-101 has also shown an effect on suicidality in some of these studies. NRX-101 is designed to address severe bipolar depression with suicidal ideation, an indication for which there is no currently approved drug and for which the only FDA-approved treatment remains electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). NeuroRx was granted Fast Track designation by the U.S. FDA for this indication in August 2017. In May of 2018 NeuroRx was awarded a Special Protocol Agreement (SPA) by the FDA for the NRX-101 phase 2b/3 trial. In April 2018, NeuroRx received a biomarker letter of support from the FDA, documenting that the company had shared evidence of increased Glx levels associated with oral administration of D-cycloserine, a phenomenon not seen with serotonin-targeted (SSRI). In November 2018, the FDA awarded NeuroRx Breakthrough Therapy designation for NRX-101.
