PDN is one of many complications of diabetes. Forty to fifty percent of diabetic patients may develop PDN over 15 to 20 years. PDN is present in 11.6% of patients with Type I diabetes and 32.1% of patients with Type II diabetes. PDN may present itself as a progressive build-up of unpleasant sensory symptoms including tingling (paraesthesia), burning pain, radiating pain down the legs and toes and lancinating or contact pain. The pain is more severe during the night and often prevents sleep. Some patients may be in a constant state of tiredness because of sleep deprivation while others are unable to maintain employment.

Dr. Jan Stahl, CEO of TRDX, commented: "The signing of this Definitive Agreement is a major achievement for the development of our partnership with Genesis. We look forward to the closing and working with Genesis to continue the groundbreaking development to treat diabetic neuropathy."
