Alkermes plc Announces Positive Results from Complete Six-Month Phase 2 Clinical Trial of ALKS 3831 in Schizophrenia

Alkermes plc announced the positive topline results from the complete, six-month, randomized, dose-ranging phase 2 study of ALKS 3831, an investigational, novel, oral atypical antipsychotic drug candidate designed to be a broad-spectrum treatment for schizophrenia. The study was designed in two stages: for the initial three months, patients were randomized to receive olanzapine or one of three doses of ALKS 3831, and antipsychotic efficacy and weight gain were assessed. Positive topline data from this stage were announced in January 2015, showing that ALKS 3831 met the study’s primary endpoint, demonstrating antipsychotic efficacy equivalent to olanzapine, as well as key secondary endpoints showing ALKS 3831’s favorable effects on weight gain compared to olanzapine. For the second three months, all patients who received ALKS 3831 during the initial three months continued to receive ALKS 3831, and patients who had received olanzapine were switched to ALKS 3831. Data from the completed study support and extend the initial positive results showing ALKS 3831’s favorable efficacy and mean weight gain profile and show for the first time that switching patients from olanzapine to ALKS 3831 resulted in a cessation of mean weight gain. For patients who received ALKS 3831 throughout the entire six-month treatment period, efficacy, as evaluated by the reduction from baseline in Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) total scores, was equivalent to olanzapine during the initial three-month stage and this efficacy was maintained throughout the second three-month stage (change in PANSS total score from Week 12 to Week 24 was -1.7 points, 95% confidence interval (CI): (-2.7, -0.7)). The beneficial effect on weight gain observed during the initial three months was also maintained during the second three-month stage. Mean percent change in body weight, from Week 12 to Week 24, was 0.5%, 95% CI: (-0.2%, 1.2%), indicating a consistent and durable blockade of olanzapine-induced weight gain. Patients who received olanzapine in the initial three-month stage were transitioned to receive ALKS 3831 for the second three-month stage. For these patients, efficacy as evaluated by PANSS scores was maintained (change in PANSS total score from Week 12 to Week 24 was -1.3 points, 95% CI: (-3.3, 0.7)). During the initial three-month stage, this patient population experienced significant weight gain, consistent with previously reported studies of olanzapine (mean percent change in body weight from baseline was 4.3%, 95% CI: (2.4%, 6.2%)). When these patients were transitioned to ALKS 3831 in the second three-month stage, overall no further weight gain was observed (mean percent change in body weight from Week 12 to Week 24 was 0.1%, 95% CI: (-1.0%, 1.2%)).
