Progress of Product Pipeline
Enrollment continues for both Phase III trials for SPN-810, which is currently in development for Impulsive Aggression in patients aged 6 to 12 years who have ADHD. The pace of enrollment is slower than anticipated due to challenges such as those experienced by caregivers in recording patient information on the new electronic diary, and lack of compliance during the screening period regarding ‘washing out' of current medications. As a consequence, we have instituted a number of measures to improve patient enrollment and retention. These include lengthening the screening period to provide increased education for site coordinators and caregivers on the electronic diary and to make it easier for caregivers and patients to comply with the trial protocol. Although the pace of recruitment has picked up recently for both Phase III trials, it is likely that enrollment will continue into 2017. The Company continues to expect to launch SPN-810 in 2019. During the third quarter of 2016, patients began enrolling into the open-label extension portion of the Phase III study.
Regarding SPN-812, currently in development for patients aged 6 to 12 years with ADHD, the Phase IIb trial is now fully recruited. The final patient visit was completed during the third quarter of 2016. Eligible patients are now entering the open label extension portion of the study. The Company continues to expect data from the SPN-812 Phase IIb trial to be available by early 2017.
"With the SPN-812 Phase IIb trial fully enrolled, we have reached another important clinical milestone as we continue to advance SPN-812 into late-stage development," said
