Sound Pharmaceuticals and University of Oxford Collaborate on New Treatment for Bipolar Disorder

Sound Pharmaceuticals (SPI) will collaborate with the University of Oxford on a Phase 2 clinical trial to test SPI-1005 for the treatment of bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is a psychiatric illness that involves both periods of mania and depression, and affects approximately 1% of adults worldwide. Unfortunately, patients have relatively few treatment options, often involving drugs such as lithium, which have significant side effects. SPI-1005 is an oral drug that contains ebselen, which mimics and induces the activity of Glutathione Peroxidase (GPx) in the brain and inner ear. SPI-1005 is under clinical investigation in several otologic diseases where GPx activity is reduced, including noise-induced hearing loss, chemotherapy-induced ototoxicity and Meniere's disease. GPx activity is thought to be diminished in several psychiatric disorders including bipolar, schizophrenia and autism, and neurologic diseases including traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia, and Parkinson's.
