GW Pharmaceuticals Initiates Phase 3 Pivotal Study of Epidiolex(R) (CBD) in Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

GW Pharmaceuticals plc announced that it has commenced a phase 3 clinical trial of Epidiolex® (cannabidiol or CBD) for the treatment of Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), a rare and severe form of childhood-onset epilepsy. During 2014, GW received Orphan Drug Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Epidiolex for the treatment of LGS. GW anticipates that top-line data from this trial will be available in early 2016. This phase 3 pivotal trial is a randomized, double-blind, 14-week comparison of Epidiolex versus placebo in a total of 150 patients to assess the dose-ranging safety and efficacy of Epidiolex as an adjunctive antiepileptic treatment. The treatment period will consist of a two-week titration period followed by a 12-week maintenance period. This phase 3 trial will have three arms of 50 patients; 20mg/kg and 10mg/kg of Epidiolex and placebo. The primary measure of this trial will be the percentage change from baseline in number of drop seizures in patients taking Epidiolex versus placebo. Several additional efficacy and safety secondary outcome measures will be analysed. Following their participation in the study, all patients are eligible to receive Epidiolex under a long term open label extension study. LGS usually begins before 4 years of age, and can be caused by a number of conditions, including brain malformations, severe head injuries, central nervous system infections, and inherited degenerative or metabolic conditions. In 30% to 35% of patients, no cause can be found. Patients commonly have frequent seizures of a wide variety, including convulsive, atonic seizures (brief loss of muscle tone and consciousness, causing abrupt falls). Drug resistance is one of the main features of LGS. Most children with LGS experience some degree of impaired intellectual functioning or information processing, as well as developmental delays and behavioral disturbances. It is estimated that there are approximately 14,000-18,500 patients with LGS in the United States and 23,000-31,000 patients with LGS in Europe.
