TransTech Pharma, LLC Announces Agreement with FDA on Special Protocol Assessment for TTP488 Phase 3 Trial in Patients with Mild Alzheimer's Disease

TransTech Pharma, LLC announced that it has reached an agreement with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Division of Neurology Products, under the Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) process, on the design of a single Phase 3 trial of TTP488 for the treatment of patients with mild Alzheimer's disease. A Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) from the FDA is a binding agreement that the Phase 3 trial design, planned execution and statistical analyses are acceptable to support regulatory approval. The Phase 3 trial will be a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of TTP488 for the treatment of patients with mild Alzheimer's disease. The trial will compare TTP488 5mg daily to placebo over the course of 18 months of treatment. Approximately 800 patients with mild Alzheimer's disease receiving standard of care (that is acetylcholinesterase inhibitors) will be enrolled. The primary efficacy analysis will be based on the changes in ADAS-cog (Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale -- cognitive subscale) and CDR-sb (Clinical Dementia Rating -- sum of boxes). TransTech Pharma anticipates beginning enrollment of patients before the end of 2014.
