Summary of Clinical Use
Fasinumab is being evaluated as a monotherapy in Phase III clinical trial (NCT02620020) for its potential to treat chronic low back pain.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
An extensive body of evidence indicates a pivotal contribution of NGF to pain mechanisms in the adult mammalian nervous system, with elevated levels of NGF reported in several painful conditions in humans [1-2]. Fasinumab specifically neutralizes the biological actions of human NGF, and this is expected to produce clinical pain relief [3].
