Challenges

Mood Disorders

Cyclical changes in estrogen, progesterone and other hormones can disrupt the function of brain chemicals such as serotonin that control mood. While these changes are normal, some hormonal fluctuations increase the risk of developing severe and disabling forms of depression during puberty, postpartum and perimenopause.

Chronic Pain

According to the International Association for the Study of Pain; chronic pain affects a higher proportion of women than men around the world; however women are less likely to receive treatment. Research has shown that women generally experience more recurrent, more severe pain and longer lasting pain.

Ignored

Women with chronic pain and mood disorders often have other symptoms including irritability, insomnia, anxiety and memory symptoms that are neglected. The current treatments including NSAIDS, SSRIs and opioids are ineffective and potentially addictive.


Ineffective

SSRIs are not always effective to treat PMS and PMDD, and can have side effects that make treatment difficult to follow long-term. Biomedical treatments achieve only modest benefits for pain and sexual functioning in women.


Uninspired

Mood disorder mechanisms in PMS and PMDD are poorly understood. Treatment protocols can include hormonal contraception, change in diet, change in daily exercise, cognitive therapy or SSRIs, without knowing the rationale between these combination treatments.

Putting Women's Health First

Our product strategy is developing an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) that will enable us to enter new markets with high efficiency.
