Role of VVZ-149, a Novel Analgesic Molecule, in the Affective Component of Pain: Results from an Exploratory Proof-of-Concept Study of Postoperative Pain following Laparoscopic and Robotic-Laparoscopic Gastrectomy.


VVZ-149 is a small molecule that both inhibits the glycine transporter type 2 and the serotonin receptor 5 hydroxytryptamine 2 A. In a randomized, parallel-group, and double-blind trial (NCT02844725), we investigated the analgesic efficacy and safety of VVZ-149 Injections, which is under clinical development as a single-use injectable product for treating moderate to severe postoperative pain.
