Bsense Bio Therapeutics is developing small molecule ion channel modulators for treatment of neuropathic pain.

Scientific approach

Bsense Bio Therapeutics’ innovative approach to target the voltage sensor domains (VSDs) of two cation channels which play a key role in pain signaling. Targeting the VSD provides greater selectivity, as this domain is located at the heart of the gating machinery which initiates channel opening or closing.
