Alkermes to Present Data on Aripiprazole Lauroxil and ALKS 3831 at 15th International Congress on Schizophrenia Research

Alkermes plc announced that clinical data on aripiprazole lauroxil, an investigational, novel, long-acting injectable atypical antipsychotic for the treatment of schizophrenia, and ALKS 3831, an investigational, novel, oral atypical antipsychotic drug candidate designed to be a broad-spectrum treatment for schizophrenia, are scheduled to be presented at the 15th International Congress on Schizophrenia Research (ICOSR) in Colorado Springs, Colo., March 28-April 1, 2015. Aripiprazole lauroxil is an injectable atypical antipsychotic with one-month and extended-duration formulations in development for the treatment of schizophrenia. Once in the body, aripiprazole lauroxil converts to aripiprazole, which is commercially available under the name ABILIFY. As a long-acting investigational medication based on Alkermes proprietary LinkeRx technology, aripiprazole lauroxil is designed to have multiple dosing options and to be administered in a ready-to-use, pre-filled product format. ALKS 3831 is a proprietary, investigational medicine designed as a broad-spectrum antipsychotic for the treatment of schizophrenia. ALKS 3831 is composed of samidorphan, a novel, potent mu-opioid antagonist, in combination with the established antipsychotic drug, olanzapine. ALKS 3831 is designed to attenuate olanzapine-induced metabolic side effects, including weight gain, in patients with schizophrenia and to have utility in the treatment of schizophrenia in patients with alcohol use.
