A Potential Breakthrough in Addiction Treatment

AD04, Adial Pharmaceuticals’ flagship product, is a genetically targeted therapeutic agent designed to combat AUD.

Results from the ONWARD trial were promising, indicating a reduction in drinking among participants without significant safety or tolerability concerns. 

Beyond AUD, AD04 holds potential applications in treating other addictive disorders, including Opioid Use Disorder, gambling addiction, and obesity.

The company’s focus on leveraging genetic targeting and advanced therapeutic modalities positions it as a key player in the evolving landscape of addiction medicine.
