"First-in-human dosing of our novel drug, NTS-104, is an important achievement for NTS," said Carl Long, Chief Executive Officer. "NTS-104 represents a compelling approach to neuroprotection with the objective of improving neurologic recovery and function in millions of patients worldwide. Our principal developmental focus is in stroke, where there are few effective treatments and a tremendous unmet need. Additionally, NTS's extensive preclinical study program demonstrates NTS-104's potential to treat multiple forms of brain injury."

About NTS-104

NTS-104 is a novel, water-soluble neurosteroid prodrug that, when delivered intravenously, is converted in the bloodstream to NTS-105, the active neurosteroid. NTS-105 rapidly enters the brain at concentrations sufficient to modulate key target receptors, protecting neurons from inflammation, edema, and programmed cell death. NTS-104 has demonstrated efficacy in multiple preclinical brain injury models validated at independent laboratories. NeuroTrauma Sciences plans to conduct a Phase 2 study of NTS-104 in acute ischemic stroke.
