About Vallon

Advancing Novel Formulations to Reduce Medication Abuse

Company Overview

About Us

Vallon Pharmaceuticals is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel abuse-deterrent medications for CNS disorders. The Company’s lead investigational product candidate, ADAIR (Abuse-Deterrent Amphetamine Immediate-Release), is a proprietary abuse-deterrent formulation of immediate release (IR) dextroamphetamine in development for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. ADAIR is designed to deter attempts to crush and snort and provides barriers to injection.

Leveraging the clinical success of dextroamphetamine, we are developing ADAIR through a streamlined 505(b)(2) U.S. FDA regulatory pathway, which is expected to obviate the need for large Phase 2 and Phase 3 efficacy and safety studies. If approved, ADAIR is expected to be the first abuse-deterrent, immediate-release formulation of dextroamphetamine.
