Executive Summary

Beta inverse agonists, also known as beta blockers, have always been considered excellent therapy for hypertension, but not so excellent for asthma. They have a reputation for impressive short-term efficacy, but at great expense: namely, an unfortunate tendency to worsen asthmatic conditions over time. Inverseon Inc., however, doesn't see that as an inevitability. In fact, the company claims its lead product, a beta-adrenergic inverse agonist called INV102, has beneficial effects on asthma with long-term use.
