Flex Pharma, Inc., incorporated on February 26, 2014, is a biotechnology firm that is developing treatments for nocturnal leg cramps, muscle cramps and spasms associated with severe neuromuscular conditions, and exercise associated muscle cramps (EAMCs).

The Firm operates through developing and commercializing products for nocturnal leg cramps, muscle cramps, spasms and spasticity associated with severe neuromuscular conditions, and exercise-associated muscle cramps segment. The Company’s product candidates are based on the mechanism of action described as Chemical Neuro Stimulation, which is the process by which a small molecule chemical signal, acting topically, is translated into a neuronal sensory signal that produces a beneficial effect. The Company’s lead drug product candidate is FLX-787, which is in the Phase II clinical trial stage. It is developing products using TRP activators.
