gw pharmaceuticals -adr (GWPH) Key Developments

GW Pharmaceuticals Receives Orphan Drug Designation From FDA for Cannabidiol for the Treatment of Neonatal Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy

GW Pharmaceuticals plc announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted orphan drug designation for Cannabidiol (CBD) for use in treating newborn children with neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (NHIE). NHIE is acute or sub-acute brain injury due to asphyxia caused during the birth process and resulting from deprivation of oxygen during birth (hypoxia). The incidence of NHIE is 1.5 to 2.8 per 1,000 births in the United States, or, 6,500 to 12,000 cases per year. Of these, 35% are expected to die in early life and 30% may suffer from permanent disability. There are currently no FDA-approved medicines specifically indicated for NHIE. GW has developed an intravenous CBD formulation for use in this patient population. GW held a pre-IND meeting with the FDA and expects to submit an Investigational New Drug Application (IND) in mid-2015 and to commence a Phase 1 trial in the second half of 2015. GW has been conducting pre-clinical research into the neuroprotective effects of CBD in animal models of NHIE since 2008. Publications from this research have shown that CBD reduces neurologic disability across a range of newborn animal models of brain hypoxia.

GW Pharmaceuticals plc Announces New Physician Reports of Epidiolex Treatment

GW Pharmaceuticals plc announced new physician reports of clinical effect and safety associated with the Epidiolex expanded access program. These data were presented by study authors at the American Academy of Neurology annual meeting in Washington DC1. Physician reports of clinical effect and safety data have been presented on 137 children and young adults with treatment-resistant epilepsy who have been treated with GW's investigational cannabidiol (CBD) product candidate, Epidiolex, for a period of at least 12 weeks. These data are from eleven hospital sites in the United States and were generated under expanded access Investigational New Drug applications (INDs) authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition, physician reports of safety data were presented on 213 patients (137 patients with twelve weeks treatment effect data plus additional patients still in their first twelve weeks of treatment or who withdrew from treatment). The expanded access program is comprised of clinical studies performed by individual physicians. FDA authorized expanded access programs facilitate access to investigational drugs for treatment use for patients with a serious or immediately life-threatening diseases or conditions who lack therapeutic alternatives. The patients included in the Epidiolex program had Dravet syndrome (18% of the total) and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) (16% of the total), epilepsy types that can lead to intellectual disability and lifelong seizures, as well as 10 other types of severe epilepsy. Many of the 10 other types of epilepsy are extreme and rare, and several patients with these epilepsies have major congenital structural brain abnormalities. The 137 patients were predominately children with an average age of 11 years. In all cases, Epidiolex was added to current anti-epileptic drug (AED) treatment regimes. On average, patients were taking approximately 3 other AEDs.
