About LB Pharmaceuticals
LB is a development stage CNS-focused life science company devoted to commercializing novel and improved versions of successful CNS treatments used extensively overseas but never developed, approved, or marketed, in the United States. Our approach is to create a research-focused organization dedicated to generating novel intellectual property around improved versions of these former best-selling drugs. We have a low-risk, high-reward drug development business plan: Invest in bringing to the US market patented, branded, first-to-market versions of standard-of-care CNS therapies currently in use worldwide.
LB’s lead compound, LB-102, or N-methyl amisulpride, is a patented benzamide designed to be an improved version of amisulpride, a dopamine/5-HT7 antagonist successfully used to treat schizophrenia in Europe for decades. LB-102 was designed to improve on amisulpride’s low permeability across the blood brain barrier. LB-102 has the potential to offer schizophrenia patients the benefits of amisulpride at a lower dose than amisulpride. A first-in-human, double-blind placebo-controlled Phase 1 study designed to test the safety and pharmacokinetics of LB-102 was completed over the summer of 2020. A Phase 2 clinical trial in acute schizophrenia patients is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2021.
