Pregabalin, an anticonvulsant in the gabapentonoid class, is under development for epilepsy, neuropathic pain and other CNS disorders such as panic, generalized anxiety, social phobia and bipolar disease
This includes many types of cancer, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis and CNS targets such as Alzheimer's and bipolar disease
The trial is sponsored by The Stanley Medical Research Institute (SMRI), the largest private source of funding for research into schizophrenia and bipolar disease
