This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

The recent failure of Newron's experimental analgesic ralfinamide to show any significant therapeutic benefit over placebo should remind us, if a reminder were necessary, that developing drugs to treat conditions affecting the central nervous system (CNS) is fraught with difficulties. Some of this uncertainty arises as a result of our incomplete understanding of many CNS disorders, from Alzheimer's disease to epilepsy, and from anxiety to psychosis.
