PAION AG is a publicly listed specialty pharmaceutical company developing and aiming to commercialize innovative drugs for out-patient and hospital-based sedation, anesthesia and critical care services. PAION’s lead compound is remimazolam, an intravenous, ultra-short-acting and controllable benzodiazepine sedative/anesthetic drug candidate for which PAION has completed the clinical development for use in procedural sedation in the U.S. Outside the U.S., PAION is currently focused on the development of remimazolam for general anesthesia. Development of remimazolam for intensive care unit (ICU) sedation is also part of the longer-term life-cycle plan for remimazolam.
PAION's vision is to become an acknowledged “PAIONeer” in sedation and anesthesia. PAION is headquartered in Aachen (Germany) with an additional site in Cambridge (United Kingdom).
