Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. Key Developments
Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Announces Results of Two Health Outcomes Studies and Placebo Controlled Randomized Trial
May 20 15
Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced the results of two health outcomes studies and a placebo controlled randomized trial presented at the American Thoracic Society (ATS) 2015 Annual Meeting in Denver. Results from these studies demonstrated that a substantial proportion of hospitalized chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients are not provided maintenance treatments; one in three patients report low confidence in using COPD devices and a majority of these patients have low treatment adherence; and more patients on Brovana (arformoterol tartrate) Inhalation Solution reported clinically significant improvements in health-status compared with placebo. Treatment Patterns for Inpatients with Acute Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (Poster Board #P620) In a retrospective analysis of claims data collected from more than 500 hospitals across the U.S. in 2012, inpatient treatment patterns for patients hospitalized with acute exacerbations of COPD indicated that 78.2% were treated with multiple bronchodilators. Only 52.5% of patients received long-acting bronchodilators while hospitalized, although the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (GOLD) guidelines state that in the hospital prior to discharge, patients should start long-acting bronchodilators, either beta2-agonists and/or anticholinergics with or without inhaled corticosteroids.
Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. Announces Positive Results for Latuda® (lurasidone HCl) in First Placebo-Controlled Trial of Patients with Major Depressive Disorder with Mixed (Subsyndromal Hypomanic) Features
May 19 15
Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced results from the first placebo-controlled study in adults with major depressive disorder (MDD) who presented with a limited number of associated manic symptoms (mixed features). This study demonstrated that Latuda® (lurasidone HCl) significantly reduced depressive symptoms in adults with MDD with mixed features when compared to placebo. The study results were presented at the 168th Annual Meeting of the American Psychiatric Association (APA). LATUDA is an atypical antipsychotic agent indicated in the United States for the treatment of adult patients with major depressive episodes associated with bipolar I disorder (bipolar depression) both as monotherapy and as adjunctive therapy with lithium or valproate, and for the treatment of adult patients with schizophrenia. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 6-week clinical trial, adults patients with MDD with a limited number of manic symptoms (mixed features) were randomized to receive 6 weeks of treatment with flexibly-dosed LATUDA 20 " 60 mg/day (N=109) or placebo (N=102). The primary efficacy endpoint in the study was change from baseline at Week 6 in Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) total score. The key secondary endpoint was change from baseline at Week 6 in the Clinical Global Impression, Severity (CGI-S) score, which assessed global severity of illness.
