CNV1014802 is a novel analgesic under development by Convergence Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of lumbosacral radiculopathy (sciatica) and trigeminal neuralgia (TGN). It acts as a selective, small-molecule, state-dependent Nav1.7 voltage-gated sodium channel blocker. In June 2014, Convergence presented positive results for a phase II clinical study of CNV1014802 in the treatment of TGN, including findings that the drug had an excellent efficacy and safety profile and was well-tolerated.[non-primary source needed]
