Executive Summary

Milestone Pharmaceuticals Inc. is developing a short-acting calcium channel blocker to treat a heart arrhythmia called paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia. PSVT usually isn’t life-threatening and typically resolves on its own, but it is alarming and often leads patients to the emergency room. Milestone envisions that its drug will be used at home as episodes arise. It has a half-life of just one to four minutes and is delivered intranasally to get to the heart quickly.
