Temporomandibular Disorders are characterized by pain in the jaw joint and surrounding muscle/tissues and jaw movement limitations. One or both joints may be involved and, depending on the severity, affect a person’s ability to speak, chew, swallow, make facial expressions and even breathe.
These patients require aggressive therapy for conditions like:
Topofen™ showed to be effective in treatment of TMJD pain,
and to reduce need for opioid rescue therapy
Achelios Therapeutics aims to overcome this and other pain-related conditions.
