Adial Pharma – Phase 3 Drug Candidate for Alcohol Abuse Disorder (AUD)

Bill Stilley, is CEO and President of Adial Pharma, a company focused on developing therapies for the treatment of addiction and related diseases, specifically Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). He discusses the company’s lead product AD04, a genetically targeted therapeutic for the treatment of AUD and the promising results from the phase 2b clinical trial in reducing frequency and quantity of drinking. AD04 is now in Phase 3 and has the potential to be an effective and safe treatment option for AUD that does not require abstinence as part of the treatment and does not have the negative side effects of the current drugs on the market.
