Raxatrigine (INN, USAN) (formerly CNV1014802, GSK-1014802) is a novel analgesic under development by Convergence Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of lumbosacral radiculopathy (sciatica) and trigeminal neuralgia (TGN).[1][2][3] It acts as a selective, small-molecule, state-dependent Nav1.7 voltage-gated sodium channel blocker.[1][2] In June 2014, Convergence presented positive results for a phase II clinical study of raxatrigine in the treatment of TGN, including findings that the drug had an excellent efficacy and safety profile and was well-tolerated.[4][non-primary source needed]
