Sound Pharmaceuticals Completes Enrollment on Meniere's Disease Clinical Trial

Sound Pharmaceuticals announced that it has completed enrollment on its first Meniere's Disease (MD) clinical trial. MD is a neurotologic disease that involves episodic vertigo, fluctuating sensorineural hearing loss, and intermittent or constant tinnitus, and is thought to be due to a swelling or inflammation of the inner ear. Patients with MD may also complain of aural fullness or pressure, and in extreme cases, may require surgery to decompress the inner ear. SPI-1005, an investigational new drug that mimics and induces Glutathione Peroxidase (GPx), has been shown to reduce the swelling or edema of the inner ear in animal studies involving acoustic trauma. In an earlier Phase 2 clinical trial, SPI-1005 was shown to prevent sensorineural hearing loss in young adults exposed to noise. These AAO-HNS presented findings have now been accepted for publication by a prestigious medical journal. Taken together, these results suggest a broad potential for SPI-1005 in the treatment of several types of sensorineural diseases of the inner ear. Currently, there are no FDA approved drug treatments for MD, or any other neurotologic disease.

Sound Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces $1.6 million Award from Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics to Prevent and Treat the Hearing Loss and Tinnitus Associated with Antibiotic Use

Sound Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that it has been awarded up to $1.6 million from Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics Inc. (CFFT). The CFFT development award will support the initial testing of SPI-1005 in people with CF who are receiving tobramycin for the treatment of acute pulmonary exacerbations or lung infections. A leading side effect of tobramycin involves damage to the inner ear and is called ototoxicity. The Phase 1b STOP Ototoxicity clinical trial will examine the incidence and severity of hearing loss, tinnitus, dizziness or vertigo due to IV tobramycin treatment. SPI-1005 is a novel oral drug that is being developed to reduce the incidence and severity of sensorineural hearing loss and tinnitus in several disease states including ototoxicity, noise and Meniere's disease.
