About Trevena

Trevena, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company that discovers, develops, and intends to commercialize therapeutics that use a novel approach to target G protein coupled receptors, or GPCRs. Oliceridine (TRV130), Trevena’s lead product candidate, is the first pain program granted Breakthrough Therapy designation by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and is in Phase 3 development for intravenous management of moderate to severe acute pain. In Phase 2b, intravenous oliceridine demonstrated rapid and powerful analgesic efficacy with fewer opioid-related adverse events including nausea, vomiting, and respiratory events compared to intravenous morphine, thus offering a promising safety and tolerability profile compared to conventional opioid analgesics while providing powerful pain relief to patients.
