Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces Positive Results from Phase 2 Proof-Of-Concept Study of ADS-5102 for the Treatment of Walking Impairment in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Patients

Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced positive findings from its Phase 2 proof-of-concept study designed to evaluate ADS-5102 (amantadine HCl) extended-release capsules in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) who have impaired walking. Data from the study suggest that ADS-5102 is well tolerated in the MS patient population and has a significant positive impact on walking speed. The company plans to present these data at an upcoming scientific conference. The Phase 2 multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group study evaluated ADS-5102 dosed at 340 mg once daily in an MS population for four weeks. Efficacy analyses were based on a modified intent-to-treat population (n=56). A key walking assessment was the timed 25-foot walk (T25FW) test, a well-established outcome measure. The T25FW test has previously been used as a basis for product approval in the United States and Europe. An approximately 15 percent placebo-adjusted improvement in walking speed was seen in the T25FW (p<0.05). The other walking performance measures used in this trial were directionally consistent. Further analyses are underway related to fatigue, depression and cognition. The types of adverse events (AEs) reported with ADS-5102 in this study were consistent with the known safety profile of amantadine. The majority of study participants experienced at least one AE (17 patients in the ADS-5102 group and 19 patients in the placebo group). Of these patients, the recorded AE intensity was mild or moderate in the majority of patients (88 percent in the ADS-5102 group; 100% in the placebo group). Five patients discontinued study drug due to an AE; all of these patients were in the ADS-5102 group. Of these patients, one patient experienced a serious AE, which was deemed study drug related in the context of a multi-factorial clinical presentation.
