Boston, MA | Sept 2022
There is an urgent need for a safe rapidly acting antidote for methamphetamine. Meth is the fastest growing drug of abuse in the U.S., representing over 798,000 annual emergency department visits, with deaths increasing 14-fold since 2015 (32,856 deaths in 2021 alone), yet no current therapeutics are available to treat meth intoxication. A therapeutic that reverses meth intoxication would save lives.
