The mission of Expanesthetics is to expand the choice of anesthetic and analgesic agents available to anesthesia clinicians and physicians as they tailor care for each individual patient.
We are using our patent-pending screening platform to efficiently search for novel inhaled general anesthetics. Our research has already revealed several compounds with compelling characteristics, and we have only screened a small subset of our library of molecules. Beyond the potential to identify general anesthetics with significant advantages over today's drugs, we have found and may continue to find other kinds of opportunities in our pipeline. For example, we have found two novel, non-opioid analgesic candidates in our library that continue to progress as lead candidates in our pain program.
