Overview: 
Afferent Pharmaceuticals is focused on developing first-in-class medicines to treat chronic pain by targeting P2X3 receptors in peripheral nerves, where pain-causing stimuli are detected. As a result, it does not expect its drugs to be as prone to central nervous system side effects. The non-opiate mechanism also offers the potential to avoid dependence that limits the use of other pain medications. The company’s lead compound, AF-219, has successfully completed two Phase 1 clinical studies, and is expected to undergo efficacy testing in several pain and pain-related indications.
