Default Experimental Ointment Drug - Xen402

Always looking for some miracle breakthrough. Has anyone heard of Xen402 or have enough knowledge to interpret if this may help reduce the pain?

I'm not able to post a link to the website, but you can Google it.

The Nav1.7 sodium channels are a target for pain.

However, it will be some years before this reaches the public.
Phase II trials move on to Phase III and then the FDA evaluates the substance and that is another delay.

We have a brief thread about this on our PN forum:

This raccoon has come out yesterday since the snow recently melted and can't decide which cherry tomato to eat first. Hubby put them on the feeding bench yesterday morning. (he doesn't like them). They were all gone by this morning.
