The company's lead product, VALTOCO™ (diazepam nasal spray), is a unique formulation of diazepam incorporating the unique combination of a vitamin E–based solution with Intravail®, a proprietary permeation enhancer excipient. VALTOCO has been developed for the management of pediatric, adolescent, and adult patients (age 6 and above) who require intermittent use of diazepam to control bouts of increased seizure activity, also known as cluster or acute repetitive seizures. The science of Intravail® enables the noninvasive delivery of a broad range of protein, peptide, and non-peptide drugs. Intravail® can be utilized via the oral, buccal, dermal, and intranasal drug administration routes. Currently under U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) review, Neurelis is preparing for the commercial launch of VALTOCO.

About VALTOCO™

VALTOCO nasal spray is a proprietary formulation of diazepam, delivered via a nasal spray formulation, developed for the management of pediatric, adolescent, and adult patients who require intermittent use of diazepam to control bouts of increased seizure activity, also known as cluster or acute repetitive seizures. In clinical trials, VALTOCO demonstrated high bioavailability, low variability from dose to dose, and was well tolerated with the most common adverse events being nasal discomfort (seen in 5% of patients in clinical trials). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) previously granted Neurelis both Orphan Drug and Fast Track designations for VALTOCO. The New Drug Application (NDA) for VALTOCO is supported by an extensive clinical and pre-clinical package, including studies in healthy volunteers and patients with epilepsy. In the patient studies, more than 2,000 seizures have been treated to date with VALTOCO nasal spray. Currently under FDA review, Neurelis is preparing for the commercial launch of VALTOCO.
