BOSTON & SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/APAAM19?src=hash" target="_blank"gt;#APAAM19lt;/agt;–Pear
Therapeutics
, Inc., the leader in prescription digital therapeutics
(PDTs), today announced poster and oral presentations for the American
Psychiatric Association Annual Meeting May 18-22 in San Francisco. The
presentations will include clinical trial data for reSET, for the
treatment of Substance Use Disorder, and Pear-004, for the treatment of
Schizophrenia.

“Prescription digital therapeutics are a novel treatment class in
healthcare that represent a shift in how we treat serious disease,
delivering efficacy for enhanced outcomes as part of standard of care
while simultaneously empowering people to access care as they need it,”
said Yuri Maricich, M.D., M.B.A., Chief Medical Officer at Pear
Therapeutics. “While prescription digital therapeutics deliver
scientific mechanisms of action and undergo rigorous testing via
randomized clinical trials and review by regulatory bodies such as the
FDA, there is a need to educate healthcare providers and patients on the
difference between PDTs and unregulated health and wellness apps.”

Dr. Maricich will deliver a podium presentation titled, “Prescription
Digital Therapeutics: A New Addition to Standard of Care
,” on
Monday, May 20 at 12:00 p.m. PT. The session will include presentations
and a panel discussion featuring:

Early Prediction of High-Risk Patients Is an Opportunity for Early

(poster number P6-010) will be
featured Monday, May 20 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. PT. The poster highlights
data demonstrating the ability to predict with 70% accuracy whether

featured Tuesday, May 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PT. The poster

iterations to enhance engagement, dosing, and efficacy. Pear-004 is
currently in a phase
2 proof-of-concept study
in collaboration with Novartis.
