Pear Therapeutics recauda $ 175 millones y se hace público a través de un acuerdo SPAC para elevar el perfil de la terapéutica digital de prescripción

La empresa de atención médica digital Pear sale a bolsa y recauda $ 175 millones (farmacia):

Pear hará su debut público hoy después de asociarse con Thimble Point, un vehículo de propósito especial para adquisiciones (SPAC), en un acuerdo que pasó por alto la oferta pública inicial (OPI) tradicional y lo valoró en alrededor de US $ 1.6 mil millones: el dólar ha aumentado. .. Pear se especializa en terapias digitales de prescripción (DTx) basadas en técnicas de terapia cognitivo-conductual (TCC) que se aplican de forma remota [patients via a dig­i­tal device. It has three apps approved by the FDA, includ­ing reSET and reSET‑O for peo­ple liv­ing with sub­stance and opi­oid use dis­or­ders, respec­tive­ly, and a tool for chron­ic insom­ni­acs called Somryst.

The com­pa­ny has pre­dict­ed it will make around $4 mil­lion in rev­enues from its DTx port­fo­lio in full-year 2021.

Last month, Pear report­ed progress with its lat­est prod­uct – a DTx for alco­hol use dis­or­der (AUD) called reSET‑A – claim­ing break­through sta­tus from the FDA for the app. It aims to over­come a des­per­ate lack of treat­ments for a con­di­tion esti­mat­ed to affect around 14 mil­lion adults in the US, caus­ing around 95,000 fatal­i­ties every year.
