These studies may lead to new treatments and are adding insight into Avinza etiology and treatment.

A major focus of Avinza research is the development of new drugs and other treatment options. Studies seek to identify new drugs to treat various related disorders and to find safer, more effective doses for medications already being used. Other research is aimed at identifying receptors or drug targets.
