June 13, 2016 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 94, ISSUE 24

Ixaltis, a start-up company focused on urogenital disorders, has raised $9 million in its first funding round. The French firm’s pipeline consists of three compounds licensed from Sanofi. The most advanced is litoxetine, a serotonin reuptake inhibitor and 5-HT3 receptor antagonist that Sanofi had studied as an antidepressant. Ixaltis will soon begin testing the compound in a Phase II trial for treating urinary incontinence. The company also received a $3.2 million loan under an academic-industrial research project dedicated to urogenital diseases.
