Cerecor Inc. Initiates Phase 2 Study for CERC-301

Cerecor Inc. announced that it has dosed the first subject in Clin301-203, a Phase 2 study of CERC-301 as an oral, adjunctive treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). CERC-301 is an NR2B specific, NMDA antagonist, which the Company believes has the potential to provide a rapid onset of antidepressant effect. Clin301-203 is a randomized, double blinded placebo-controlled trial designed to evaluate the antidepressant effect of 12 mg and 20 mg doses of CERC-301. The trial is expected to enroll approximately 104 subjects with MDD who are currently experiencing a severe depressive episode despite stable ongoing treatment with either a serotonin reuptake inhibitor, or SSRI, or serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, or SNRI. Clin301-203 includes two intermittent dose administrations seven days apart, followed by 14 days of observation. The primary objective of Clin301-203 is to evaluate the antidepressant effect of CERC-301, in 12 mg and 20 mg dosages, compared to placebo as assessed by the 6-item unidimensional sub-set of the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale.
