SAGE’s lead program, SAGE-547, is in clinical development for super-refractory status epilepticus (SRSE) and is the first of many compounds the company is developing in its portfolio of potential seizure medicines. SAGE’s robust chemistry platform has generated multiple new compounds that target the GABAA and NMDA receptors, which have demonstrated preclinical activity.
