On October 10, 2017 the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine, Destination Medical Center, and Medical Alley Association are hosting the Discovery Square Innovators + Investors Forum at the Mayo Civic Center.

Jeff Missling, CEO, will describe the value that SpineThera’s sustained-release injectable steroid, SX600, may deliver to patients, physicians, and payers. SpineThera designed SX600 with the goal of providing patients long-term back pain relief from a single epidural steroid injection.  Mr. Missling is scheduled to speak at 3:00 pm.   

About SpineThera:

SpineThera designs and develops sustained-release, injectable drugs to meet the unique safety requirements for administration in and near the spine. Our goal is to develop proprietary drugs that offer patients and physicians new treatment options that reduce risk, improve outcomes, and manage overall treatment costs in markets with few or no approved drugs. SX600, our lead product candidate, is an investigational drug.
