"The unique science underlying TI-001's robust efficacy and lack of abuse potential is the relationship shared between pain and oxytocin," stated David C.

"Prolonged pain increases the amount of oxytocin receptors for the drug to work on. Because of this, those with chronic migraines are in an almost constant state of elevated oxytocin receptor numbers on trigeminal neurons. With nasal delivery, TI-001 directly applies oxytocin to the trigeminal neurons and rapidly produces an analgesic effect, but only in the presence of painful inflammation."
