Adial Pharmaceuticals is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the treatment and prevention of addictions. The Company’s lead investigational new drug product, AD04, is currently in Phase 3 development as a genetically targeted therapeutic agent for the treatment of Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). A Phase 2b clinical trial of AD04 for the treatment of AUD showed promising results in reducing frequency and quantity of drinking and heavy drinking with no overt safety concerns.

Designed to reduce craving to effectively curb alcohol intake in those patients with the genetics expected to indicate a likely response to treatment with AD04


To date, clinical testing of AD04 has shown it to have a positive safety and tolerability profile with side effects similar to placebo.

AD04 Ready to Enter Phase 3 in Targeted Groups

Adial has commenced a Phase 3 clinical trial using AD04 for the potential treatment of AUD in subjects with certain target genotypes.

Adial has created an investigational attendant diagnostic biomarker blood test for the genetic screening of patients with certain biomarkers that, as reported in the American Journal of Psychiatry (Johnson, et. al. 2011 & 2013), Adial believes make patients more likely to benefit from treatment with AD04.

Adial’s strategy is to integrate pre-treatment genetic screening into AD04’s label to create a patient-specific treatment in one integrated therapeutic offering. Adial’s goal is to develop a genetically targeted, effective and safe product candidate to treat AUD that does not require abstinence as part of the treatment.
