Improving Narcolepsy Therapy with Drug Delivery Technology

July 24, 2020

Narcolepsy is a rare neurological sleep disorder with limited treatment options. Avadel is working on a controlled-release formulation of the standard of care, sodium oxybate, that allows for a once nightly dose of the drug. We spoke to Greg Divis, CEO of Avadel, about the company’s experimental therapy for narcolepsy, how it improves on the existing standard of care, and how it breaks with the company’s existing base of business.

Editor’s note: We recorded this podcast in late June. During the interview, Divis discussed the company’s hospital products. On July 1, 2020, Avadel announced the sale of its hospital products portfolio to strategically focus on advancing FT218 through the FDA regulatory review process.
