Incline Therapeutics

Advancing the first needle-free, patient-controlled patch for management of post-operative pain

Incline was founded in 2010 to develop IONSYS, a late-stage therapeutic licensed from J&J. IONSYS is an innovative, needle-free patch that delivers fentanyl for the short-term management of post-operative pain, representing an alternative to traditional intravenous patient-controlled analgesia. Incline was purchased by The Medicines Company in 2012, and The Medicines Company gained FDA approval for IONSYS in 2015.
