June 24, 2020

IRLAB announced today that IRLAB’s candidate drug mesdopetam (IRL790) is featured on the cover of the July 01, 2020, issue of the highly ranked scientific journal JPET. The cover illustrates how mesdopetam binds to the dopamine D3 receptor. The scientific paper further describes the compounds beneficial system level effects in the brain. Mesdopetam is in development for the treatment of motor and psychiatric complications in Parkinson’s disease.
