Anavex Life Sciences Corp. Releases Promising Full Preclinical Epilepsy Data at Antiepileptic Drug Trials XIII Conference

Anavex Life Sciences Corp. revealed full preclinical anti-seizure data for its lead drug candidate, ANAVEX 2-73, in a presentation on May 15, 2015 at the Antiepileptic Drug Trials XIII Conference. ANAVEX 2-73 demonstrated convincing data in three well-established and according to experts highly predictive preclinical anti-seizure models with potentially more favorable side effect profile than currently marketed epilepsy drugs. The cognitive-enhancing features of ANAVEX 2-73 might be a differentiating factor since seizures cause neuro-cognitive impairments, which can be worsened by current epilepsy medications. The strong performance of ANAVEX 2-73 was also confirmed in combination with three generations of epilepsy drugs currently on the market. ANAVEX 2-73 exhibited dose-dependent significant anti-convulsive action by providing almost complete to complete protection from tonic seizures in three established seizure models: In maximum electroshock (MES)-induced convulsions, 30 mg/kg ANAVEX 2-73 provided 90% protection. In pentylenetetrazol (PTZ)-induced convulsions, the same dose provided 85% protection. In a semicarbazide (SCZ) model, the same dose was able to delay the tonic seizures from 56.9 seconds to 99.2 seconds. In (PTZ)-induced convulsions, 60 mg/kg ANAVEX 2-73 had a long-lasting effect with 100% seizure protection after both 4 and 6 hours, respectively.
